Free Health Fair in Flushing
From SeGye

By Kim Jin-Se

On Tuesday, November 5, Health Awareness Day for Asian senior citizens was held at the Chinese Cultural Center, in Flushing.

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York sponsored the program. Other health and nutritional diet companies and nursing home care centers, such as Franklin Health Care Center, participated. About 200 Koreans and Chinese were offered medical examination of blood pressure, blood sugar, and osteoporosis, dental checkup and health counseling.

Cho Young-Sook, the Asian team manager of Visiting Nurse Service of New York and director of Korean counseling service, said, "The Health Awareness Day is being provided for promoting our service business to the Korean and the Chinese community." She suggested that people make good use of other services for special treatments for individual patients.

John Liu, the Council Member of New York City from the 20th District in Flushing, Queens, visited the fair, spoke about the importance of health management, and thanked the Visiting Nurse Service for offering health service for the local community.

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York, founded in 1893, is the largest non-profit home health care agency in the nation. It offers professional nursing service by partnership programs with many Asian-American organizations, and works with nearly every doctor, and hospital in the New York Metropolitan Area.
