Get Healthy 2012 Summary

gh2012pics_1_In 2011, MEMAH held its 1st health fair event, Get Healthy Pasadena. We screened 1,100 people. In 2012, our 2nd year doing the health fair we screened more than 2,000 people and had some of the best restaurants and best entertainment in Pasadena.

Barbara Morrison was one of our speakers on the diabetes presentation, speaking from her own experience. She also took the opportunity to perform for Get Healthy Pasadena along with many other talented entertainers.

Clinicians performed screenings for prostate cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke, in addition to providing eye and dental exams. There was no shortage of food with supporters such as Whole Foods, Robin’s BBQ, Corner Bakery, Marston’s Restaurant, Mi Piace and StoneFire Grill.

Copious notes were taken at the speakers forums where attendees listened to lectures from City of Hope, Kaiser Permanente, HealthCare Partners, Glendale Memorial Hospital and the Pasadena Health Department.
MEMAH would like to thank our major sponsors who provided screenings and key speakers for the various workshops.  Special thanks to City of Hope, HealthCare Partners, AXIA, Kaiser Permanente, ZIQUIN, Glendale Memorial, Pasadena Health Department and the Tournament of Roses.
