Urban Health Plan's10th Annual Diabetes Expo had a great turnout! The crowd loved the food demonstrations by Chef Enrique Pineiro (seen below with founder Dr. Richard Izquierdo) and Dr. D'Amore. Lots of screenings helped the community learn whether they were at risk for diabetes and how to manage this urban epidemic. News 12 and New York 1 covered the event, which helped spread the word about the great work UHP does to fight diabetes!
The South Bronx community enjoyed good weather, good entertainment and good information at our 18th Annual Fiesta San Juan on June 22, 2013. The day-long health fair kicked off with a parade of our departments and sites, led by the Bronx marching band The Golden Knights. This year’s celebration used Hollywood’s favorite movie themes in kiosks to give residents information about the many health, medical and social services offered by Urban Health Plan and other community-based and private health organizations. The day-long celebration raised awareness about health resources needed to combat health challenges facing many South Bronx residents. Fiesta San Juan is our way of saying "thank you" to the community for their years of supporting our organization.
