COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR
This is one of our local community programs that provides general consultation and education. Many patients who come to our health fair cannot afford insurance, and typically live under the poverty line. We hope to bridge this gap of health access by providing services that are typically needed for the patrons we serve. Once a year, M.E.M.O. collaborates with Vietnamese Physician Association of Southern California (V.P.A.S.C.), Lestonnac Free Clinic, Vietnamese Cancer Society, and CalOptima to host a health fair where health and trained students tend to people of the local Orange County community.
LESTONNAC FREE CLINIC
M.E.M.O. has the opportunity to volunteer at the Lestonnac Free Clinic at their Garden Grove location. The clinic aims to offer free healthcare services to those in Southern California who are unable to afford it. Volunteers are able to gain clinical experience here. Volunteers must commit to a shift for the whole quarter. If you're interested, rotation sign ups begin at the start of every quarter, and can be found on the M.E.M.O. Facebook page and email announcements. If you have any questions regarding the clinic, please feel free to contact Caroline Cao or Celeste Montalvo through Facebook, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
