Now is your chance to find medical and dental services for your family, with a big dose of fun! Fresno EOC Health Services is hosting its 8th Annual Clinic Day for the community at its Calaveras Street location in downtown Fresno on Friday, May 13. 

Clinic Day happens in May, because it is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month. While everyone is invited, the primary goal is to reach teen parents and provide them with resources and information concerning their family’s health. It’s also about giving young people the information they need to help prevent teen pregnancies.

Belinda Her, Project Coordinator for the California Personal Responsibility Education Program (CAPREP), says this event is important because it can reach young people who have suddenly become parents and need some guidance. “Health Services offers a wraparound of services, especially for young families at different stages. So, if one program doesn’t work for you, you can go to another that fits the criteria you need. It’s pivotal because some people may not have access to this vital care or know where to find it.”

Several Fresno EOC Health Services programs will be represented, with staff providing information about available services. Programs include:

 

 

There will be free health screenings at Clinic Day. The Fresno EOC Community Health Center will provide blood pressure screenings, family planning and reproductive health information, oral health education and dental screenings for children 16 and younger. In addition, they will give away dental kits. Kits will come with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and a timer to make sure kids brush their teeth for an appropriate amount of time, which is two minutes.

 

Attendees will also be able to learn about other Fresno EOC programs, including Women, Infants & Children (WIC)Head Start 0 to 5, and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Plus, a food distribution will be set up at the event with bags of fruits, veggies, and dry goods donated by the Central California Food Bank.

 

And speaking of food, each attendee will be treated to a free hot dog, chips, and a beverage. There will also be live entertainment and giveaways! So, be sure to head out to 2430 Calaveras Street (across from Dickey Playground) on May 13 between 3 to 5PM. Visit the Fresno EOC Health and Dental Services Facebook page for more information.
