SDAIHC at FilAmFest 2011

SDAIHC teamed up with fellow community clinic Operation Samahan and other community organizations at the 2011 Filipino American Arts & Culture Festival (FilAmFest).  Operation Samahan, a title sponsor for the FilAmFest and head of the Health & Wellness Area, spearheaded the program, the theme of which was "Healthy and Active Lifestyles."  In accordance with the theme, SDAIHC provided literature and giveaways on mental health, dental health, and diabetes prevention/maintenance.  The Youth Center also provided assistance in creating gift bags for attendees who filled out a health survey; the gift bags included goodies from all participating health organizations, including a frisbee and pamphlet from SDAIHYC!  The FilAmFest is among the largest one-day intergenerational programs in San Diego County, with nearly 15,000 people attending in 2010.
