Health Fair at the Cedro Clinic
The Cedro Galán Clinic celebrated its third anniversary with a community health fair on Saturday, October 22nd. The health fair included 5 main themes:
- sexual health
- social health with a focus on preventing drug and alcohol abuse
- nutrition and a balanced diet
- diabetes education and prevention
- mosquito-borne illnesses awareness and prevention
Each theme was comprised of an instructional component and a hands-on activity to reinforce the lesson. Students from our Generation (Youth Medical Career Education) program created posters, co-taught themes, and led games with Program Directors throughout the fair.
Further, our Girls' Health students expressed interest in educating their community on machismo culture. We loved this cross-bridging of MPI programs, as it allowed our students to be leaders and contribute to the sustainability of our initiatives. We also had child-friendly activities such as a dental hygiene station with toothbrush give-a-ways and face painting!
