Event description

Description

According to research, Chinese Canadians a have higher risk of developing diabetes, and lower access to health care resources. The main obstacles are language, culture and lack of knowledge in local health systems. On the other hand, the main stream health care providers have a hard time accessing the Chinese community. In order to bridge the gap and promote healthy living in our community, the first Chinese community health fair is being hosted in Guelph with Chinese population around 6000 . Free health screening such as BG and BP check will be provided; a family physician will give a presentation regarding the health care system in Canada and chronic disease management; a multidisciplinary health care team will provide consultation, etc. It is a great opportunity to connect services providers and community. Each participant will receive information packages about service providers and healthy living material. Together, let's make our community strong and healthy. The event is free for participants. Used clothes donation to Diabetes Canada is appreciated.
