STAMFORD, CT - A variety of health services and some useful tips on diet, exercise and lifestyle activities will be available from 9am until 4pm on April 19th as part of “Health Day,” an event co-hosted by Franklin Street Community Health Center and Building One Community. This event was originally scheduled for March 22nd and was postponed due to inclement weather.
The event, which is designed to provide Stamford’s immigrant population with important medical and dental services, will be held at Building One Community, 75 Selleck Street, Stamford, CT.
The event will include:
· Dental cleaning and application of fluoride sealants
· HIV testing
· Blood pressure screenings
· Vision screening
· And a variety of health & wellness information
Information on nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, sexually transmitted diseases and access to health care services will also be available and CHC medical staff will be present to answer questions. A CHC Access to Care Coordinator will be on hand to help qualified people apply for state medical insurance.
On April 20th, CHC will provide additional dental hygiene appointments for a fee. Those interested should contact Lorely Peche at (203) 674-8585 x119.
CHC and Building One Community have worked together over the past five years to improve health and wellness for Stamford area immigrants who often lack access to quality health care services.
