Multicultural Health and Wellness Fair at Oakland
VHIO provided interpretation services at Regeneration Church. Over 300-400 people came so we deem it to be pretty successful. VHIO members helped out with registration and interpreted for screenings (blood pressure, BMI, eyes), flu shot immunization, and at the HealthPAC workshop.
Kristine, one of our Vietnamese volunteers, was also asked what Hepatitis B was and so, had the chance to apply Decal material she learned in a real-life situation!
Since there not many Chinese speaking patients who needed interpreters, our Chinese volunteers helped out with directing patients to screening, serving food among other tasks.
