LULAC’s Latinos Living Healthy Feria de Salud in Los Angeles is a Huge Success
Date:9/25/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

Over the weekend, more than 16,000 Californians attended LULAC’s Feria de Salud where participants benefitted from a variety of health services at no cost, which included flu shots and screenings for diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, and HIV. The Feria de Salud was the fourth health fair which LULAC has held as part of its Latinos Living Healthy signature program which was made possible with the help of Walmart. Other partners included PepsiCo, City of Hope, Toyota, The Walt Disney Company, and Anthem BlueCross/Well Point.

In addition, the well-known Chef LaLa presented healthy Latino food options with a live demonstration and provided recipe cards that featured traditional cooking methods replaced with healthy options. Children played soccer, tennis, and participated in sports drills that were provided by the Brotherhood Crusade, and joined their parents in the free Zumba and yoga classes.

“By including activities that are designed to promote healthy living to all ages, the Feria de Salud encourages healthy eating habits and exercising for the entire family,” stated LULAC National President Margaret Moran.

“By providing information on health care coverage and related services, we help ensure that our community takes advantage of the unprecedented opportunity presented by the Affordable Care Act,” said LULAC National Executive Director Brent Wilkes. “We were encouraged by the large turnout and interest in this type of information.”

Finally, in order to ensure that our community is fully informed, insurance experts were on hand to explain how Covered California works and how Californians can sign up for health insurance. Pursuant to the Affordable Care Act, beginning on October 1st, 2013, people will have access to health insurance exchanges and will be able to sign up for health insurance coverage.

In addition to all of these activities, the Feria de Salud provided over sixteen hours of free entertainment, including a special reunion of Angelica Maria and Mariachi Sol de Mexico.
