The Philippine American Cultural Center of Michigan (PACCM) and the Vietnamese American Association of Michigan (VAAM) will jointly conduct a Health Wellness Fair on Oct. 14, 2017 at the PACCM building in Southfield.
The sponsors of this year’s Health and Wellness Fair are the Michigan Asian American Pacific Affairs Commission (MAAPAC), Council of Pacific Americans (CAPA), World Medical Relief (WMR), National Federation of Filipino American Associations-Michigan (NaFFAA) and the National Alliance To Nurture the Aged and the Young (NANAY, Inc).
See related flyer on Page 5.
The free clinic will start at 9 a.m. and will end at 1 p.m. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Patients will be attended to on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The services to be provided will include doctor’s consultation (ask-the-doctor session), flu shots, cholesterol test (12-hour fasting required), diabetes screening, EKG, blood pressure monitoring, massage therapy and breast exam education.
Qualified to be treated at the free clinic are persons 18 years old and older.
The Health and Wellness Fair was used to be held in the month of May, but this was not pushed through last May because the major sponsor, the Philippine Medical Association of Michigan, decided not to support the charity clinic.
This prompted PACCM headed by President Becky Tungol to reset it in October, this year.
For further information, persons who want to take advantage of the free clinic are asked to communicate with Becky Tungol, PACCM president at (248) 755-6119 or [email protected]; Tony Kho, PACCM executive director, at tel. 248-755-6122.
