Organizers gearing up for annual Spanish Language Health Fair
EUREKA - Organizers are wrapping up the final details for the Spanish Language Health Fair Sunday.
The event is called “Festejando Nuestra Salud" which translates to "Celebrating Our Health". Information, resources, and activities related to health care and health access will be offered. The resources are geared toward the Spanish speaking families but all are welcome at the free event. Organizers expect to see 500 to 600 people. The event will run from noon to four, Sunday afternoon at the Redwood Acres.
"I think it's really important because i don't think there are many places here where we can all come together and just like look at each other as other family members, other community members. In other places there might be other events but in rural places like Humboldt County, it's really good to come out to a place and see all this information that you might not know about,” Juan Bernal, a coordinator of the health fair, said.
Should the Humboldt County Correctional Facility provide more re-entry fairs for prisoners?
