HITN organized a Vida Y Salud health fair last Saturday, May 6th, in collaboration with NY Assembly Deputy Speaker Phil Ramos. The HITN brand Vida Y Salud translates to “Life and Health,” and aims to promote overall well-being.
This event, organized for the benefit of the Hispanic community in Brentwood, NY was made possible thanks to the generous support and sponsorship of EmblemHealth, Northwell South Shore Hospital, Optimum, and took place at La Espiguita Soccer Academy.
The health fair was attended by a diverse range of organizations and community groups. Attendees had the opportunity to engage with these healthcare providers and organizations, gaining valuable insights and access to resources. HITN was in charge of the logistics for participants to showcase their important work, ensuring an interactive and informative experience for all.
“We are delighted to organize this health fair in collaboration with NY Assembly Deputy Speaker Phil Ramos and our sponsors,” said Michael D. Nieves, President and CEO of HITN. “This health fair offers essential healthcare resources and creates a joyful environment for the community to celebrate a commitment to well-being. We extend our sincere gratitude to EmblemHealth, Northwell South Shore Hospital, and La Espiguita for their valuable support in making this event possible.”
Beyond health-related services, the Vida Y Salud health fair offered exciting activities for individuals and families to engage in. Children indulged in face painting and balloon art, adding a touch of whimsy to the event. Additionally, a Zumba class was provided, offering a fun and energizing way to stay active. Attendees also had the chance to win exciting prizes through raffles, contributing to the festive atmosphere.
The highlight of the event was a captivating live music performance by the talented local band, “Orquestra La Elegancia.” Their lively tunes provided an engaging backdrop to the community gathering, fostering a sense of togetherness and celebration.
