Members of the Asian community are invited to participate in the first PATCH health event which will focus on ways to incorporate healthier choices in your daily life. PATCH (Providing Access To Community Health) is a group of local community organizations and businesses from the Sacramento metro area who have come together to help bridge the gap for ethnic communities who do not know where to go to access community health resources. As a means to continue to improve the daily lives of Sacramento area residents, PATCH was created as an opportunity for these communities to have access to health resources.
Come join us for this free event and:
• Get active with the Sacramento Kings Break Dancers
• Learn how to improve your diet
• Get information about insurance plans
• Enjoy healthy food
• Watch live cooking demonstrations
• Assess your risk for diabetes
• Learn how to incorporate more physical activity in your daily life
PATCH will be a series of local Sacramento area events designed to provide necessary health resources and teach the members of the Asian, Hispanic and African-American communities about preventative health, insurance enrollment, nutrition, diabetes, and other health-related issues. The first event will be for the Asian community, with a Hispanic event in the Spring and one in the Fall for the African-American community.
