Health Fair for Nail Salon Workers - Need your feedbacks!

The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center has agreed to host a Community Health Fair for Nail Salon Workers. If we want to move forward, we need to pick one of the following two options: First Option: Join "Good Health Day" on Saturday, August 1st (which is already planned) at Charles Wang Flushing site parking lot (136-26 37th Avenue). They can offer free screening on cholesterol and glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, bone density, vision, colorectal cancer screening and hepatitis B screening, and other health education activities. The advantage of holding this screening event on Good Health Day is that all the activities have been planned and it won’t have any disruption on our clinical workflow. There will be other health and social service agencies setting up information booths at the Good Health Day event. So there will be a lot of resources and information for anyone who attend. Second Option: Hold a health screening day at one of the Charles Wang Health Center clinical floors (136-26 37th Avenue) on a weekday in the next 2-3 months. They will make one of the clinical floor available for the various health screening and health information activities. They will have to plan this event with all the organizations involved to maximize outreach and prove translation in different languages. The health center does not have in–house expertise in occupational health or pulmonary health but can reach out to other health facilities for sharing of resources and expertise. They would be happy to connect and share resources.
