Building Skills Partnership

Orange County’s 1st Annual Health Fair

On December 2, 2011 Building Skills Partnership held its First Annual Health Fair in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente. Over 60 members and their families received health information on diabetes, nutrition, and received free screenings provided by Kaiser Permanente such as glucose, cholesterol, BMI, blood pressure, and flu shots.  Other health community groups such as Centro Cultural which provides recreational courses for the whole family offered wellness resources. All participants enjoyed nutritious snacks and got to participate in a raffle where they won prices for being proactive with their health.  Overall, participants enjoyed themselves and received valuable tools that will help them maintain healthier life styles.
