A Mission to Address Healthcare Disparities
The Glendale Health Festival was established in 2011 to address the lack of access to healthcare faced by the community’s uninsured and underinsured populations. To date, the festival has provided critical medical services to thousands of individuals. The festival is free and open to the public, and this year’s event promises to continue the mission of improving healthcare access for all members of the community.
Comprehensive Services Offered
The festival will bring together a team of healthcare experts, including primary care physicians, dentists, optometrists, cardiologists, surgeons, nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists, and more. These professionals will provide free vision, medical, and dental screenings, as well as treatments such as dental fillings and prescription eyeglasses made on-site.
The 12th Annual Glendale Health Festival will provide an array of free services, including:
- Dental Services: Extractions, fillings, and cleanings
