Fourth Annual SFS Health Fair




The Fourth Annual Health Fair in Honor of World Refugee Day is coming up on June 23th 2012. This year Somali Family Service is partnering with the East African Collaborative -  a collaborative of 8 organizations working with East African communities in San Diego.  The Fourth Annual Health Fair’s theme is Healthcare Reform and as usual, the fair will be held in the City Heights Community Park.  The purpose of the Health Fairis primarily to promote health and healthy communities in San Diego, particularly with East African communities.  Over the past 20 years, more than 30,000 East Africans have settled in San Diego, mostly concentrated in City Heights.   To overcome the unique cultural and linguistic challenges they face, new immigrants need special assistance with access to healthcare,amil



enrollment in education, and business development. Come and join us for an afternoon full of health related information, presentation of local health care providers and fun activities for whole families.
