Healthy People, Healthy Community

Healthy People, Healthy Community

HOSA ISPS hosted their first Health Fair on Saturday, March 4th, 2023. HOSA executed this initiative to offer members of the Trinidadian community the opportunity to learn more about a specific practice they wish to pursue in the future, or simply become more educated about. Each HOSA member contacted and partnered up with a healthcare professional that practiced an occupation within the healthcare field. Attendees were able to visit the different speciality booths by which the health professionals shared their experiences and knowledge through demonstrations, consultations and personalized advice. These booths were inclusive of Family Medicine, Dermatology, Surgery, Physiotherapy and Psychology.

Attendees were also able to participate in free dental, vision, hearing, and blood glucose screenings from our action booths. Here, they were given feedback regarding the results of the screening that offered them insight to learn more about their bodies. To continue, participants were able to visit our range of health-related vendors which included, Aioli MarketPlace, Loud Lollies, Twin Island Totes, Johnny’s Young Coconuts, PYUA Organics, Twigs Naturals, Amāre Probiotics, Guiltless Yogurt, BOJA and Dragonfly Handmade TT. 

HOSA is proud to have set a foundation for multiple health fairs to come, in order to promote health and wellness throughout our communities. This event would not have been possible without our dedicated members and our engaged attendees. 

Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you next time!
