Health Lecture: Life care management
“My parents (age 71 and 70) are in the US for some time. They took advantage of health fair organized by BAPS Charities. I was very impressed with this health fair as it was very well planned. We got dental/eye/internal medicine/cardiovascular all services and in-depth consultation from prominent Bay Area doctors at the same place in a very comfortable setting. I was also inspired by the volunteers, particularly the teenagers, getting involved in such community service to help aged people who were coming to this health fair. Thanks to BAPS Charities for organizing such one-of-its-kind health fair free of charge for everyone in the community to take advantage. I will definitely encourage others to join with family for such future health fairs.”
