Large numbers of children and adults who live in the Los Angeles area have no medical insurance or regular healthcare. For them, the many health fairs that we organize or support in the community can open the door to better health and even save lives.
As we provide a host of free health services and screenings, we often identify the signs of serious health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease that might otherwise go untreated.

The event drew more than 35,000 people in 2012 and involved a team of 270 Cedars-Sinai physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who provided medical screenings, flu shots, nutrition counseling, risk assessments for breast cancer, yoga exercises and more.
