Health care is something we need to take care of every day of the year and not just when you have an illness.
One of the purposes of Myhealthfair.com is to serve as a means to disseminate useful information and resources to bridge the health care gap.
We want to educate communities through the resources available from the organizations and medical professionals that are part of our online platform.
The downloadable online International Health Days calendar is an opportunity to bring the importance of health care to the attention of patients and organizations alike.
The organizations that make up our virtual fair are:
- All of Us Research Program
- Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
- Multicultural Alzheimer`s Prevention Program
- Project Bread
- The Dimock Center
- TUFTS Health Plan
- Whittier Street Health Center
They conduct campaigns in accordance with their mission, to raise awareness of health issues, as well as to encourage groups or individuals to seek information and services.
We believe that it is through access to resources that people can change their attitudes towards health care.
In this way, individuals and communities are empowered to choose healthy behaviors and make changes that reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases.
With this resource we want to raise awareness, mobilize local knowledge and resources, support our participants in spreading the word about these important dates, encourage people to choose healthier lifestyles and prevent disease.
