Burnside Park Health Fair

On November 5, 2016 the Rhode Island Medical Navigator Partnership collaborated with community partners to host its first annual community health fair in Burnside Park. With partners including the Ocean State Immunization Collaborative, Project Weber/RENEW, Clinica Esperanza and Fostering Hope we were able to provide a range of services including flu vaccines, STI/Hep C/HIV testing, blood pressure and glucose monitoring. We also loved seeing the DPH and Healthy Communities Office. It was a very well attended event with about 100 visitors! We hope that people were able to address some of their basic health needs and gain access to follow up care. Here’s to bringing health care to the people!
