Feria de Salud en Casa Yurumein: Cuidando a la Comunidad del Bronx

On April 13, 2024, Casa Yurumein became the setting for an exciting Health Fair, in collaboration with Bronx Community Health Network (BCHN) and several community partners. This event focused on promoting health and disease prevention among Bronx residents.

During the fair, BCHN health professionals were on hand taking blood pressure and providing valuable information about hypertension, educating attendees on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent heart disease.

In addition, representatives from various pharmaceutical companies joined the fair to provide crucial information about HIV, raising community awareness about the importance of prevention and access to treatment.

A highlight was the collaboration between Casa Yurumein and the public to create a memorial mural in honor of those who lost their lives due to COVID-19. This activity was not only a moving tribute, but also a way to bring the community together in difficult times.

Hondurans Against AIDS Inc. also played a crucial role in sharing vital information and distributing prevention kits, including COVID-19 tests, condoms, pregnancy tests and masks. Their presence and support were instrumental in promoting awareness and disease prevention in the community.

The Yurumein Home Health Fair was an impactful event that reflects the commitment of BCHN and its partners to improve the health and wellness of all Bronx residents. We thank all those who participated and contributed to the success of this initiative.

We extend a cordial invitation to continue participating in the activities scheduled for this month of April, as part of the celebration of Garifuna heritage in the United States and Central America. Join us in this exciting celebration as we explore and honor the rich culture and traditions of the Garifuna community.

Together we build a path to a more secure and unified future!
