Fremont, CA – Bay Area Community Health (BACH) is excited to bring families together again at the informative, entertaining, and free Ohana Health Fair. Ohana means “family” in Hawaiian.
The Fairs will be hosted from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on consecutive Saturdays in two locations:
- Glen View Elementary School, 600 W. 8th Street in Gilroy, Saturday, August 6
- Newark Community Center, 35501 Cedar Blvd. in Newark. Saturday, August 13
Community members will learn about BACH’s services at resource booths staffed by service providers and health experts. They will be joined by a diverse group of community partners, representing the needs of communities served by BACH. In addition to nutrition and physical fitness, BACH’s community partners will address immigration law, domestic violence prevention, food insecurity, child abuse prevention, and LBGTQ+ issues. BACH will provide free health screenings and COVID vaccinations to people of all ages.
According to BACH’s Chief Executive Officer, Zettie D. Page, III, M.D., Ph.D., MBA, MSW, MS, “Health education is central to our partnership with the communities we serve in Alameda and Santa Clara counties. This year’s Ohana Health Fair focuses on connecting people to needed services provided by Bay Area Community Health and our diverse community partners. We encourage community members to actively participate in their health and wellness through these connections.”
“Healthy living is something you must learn and participate actively,” added Dr. Page.
The fairs will offer activities for all ages, including engaging guest speakers, fun fitness coaching, live music, and dance performances during the day. There also will be numerous raffle prizes, including iPads, gas and grocery coupons, San Jose Sharks memorabilia, bicycles, and Disney on Ice tickets.
