2019 Healthy Living Fair

In 2019, we provided the Healthy Living Fair services at St. Mary Parish in Gilroy. As with our past thirteen health fairs, in 2019 we provided needed healthcare services and educational information to hundreds of low-income, multi-ethnic, medically underserved people. We brought much-needed dental and vision services directly to the site through our generous providers and emphasizing prevention through screening, education, enhanced awareness, early detection, and health promotion.

Partner organizations donating volunteers and/or expertise to this past event included St. Mary Parish, Congregation Emeth, Tzu Chi Buddhist Foundation, the Lions Club, the Vision Service Plan, OnSite Dental, Santa Clara County Dental Society, and Santa Clara County Optometric Society. We are grateful to Tabard Theater, Kaiser Medical Foundation, Anthem Foundation, Gilroy Rotary Club, Health Trust, UFCW Local 5, as well as Congregation Shir Hadash donors for their generous contributions to our 2019 event.
