American University of Health Sciences Foundation will be holding its 5th annual health and wellness fair at 1600 E. Hill St., Signal Hill, CA 90755, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
During this event, AUHS students, staff, faculty and local vendors will be volunteering their time and services and will be offering free flu shots and free health screenings to everyone in attendance. The university has also handed out 1,000 free groceries vouchers to various charitable organizations, local elementary schools, and social services agencies. The vouchers can be brought to the health fair and exchanged for free groceries.
“AUHS students are encouraged to go beyond academic excellence and use their time to make a positive impact in the local community, especially with the underserved populations in the City of Signal Hill and Long Beach.” AUHS Foundation President Dr. Kim Dang said, “As we are blessed we want to be able to bless others for this particular community.”
In addition to the health and wellness fair, AUHS will also be hosting a book fair on the same day and time. The book fair will feature books for children ages 4-11, and 1,000 free book vouchers have been given out. Kids will also have the chance to play at the Pumpkin Patch booth and have their picture taken.
The book fair will take place at the same time and location as the health fair, and guests are encouraged to visit both.
