By Brenda Hermiz :: Thursday, June 5, 2008 :: 58410 Views :: Health & Fitness, Community & Culture

Michigan, USA - The Chaldean American Association of Health Professionals (CAAHP) will be sponsoring a Chaldean Community Health ‘O Rama on Sunday, June 8th, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the afternoon.  The health fair will be held in the Mother of God Church, Southfield community hall and is open to the entire community. 

The event will feature physicians, medical specialists, the American Red Cross, and other related health professionals offering free health screening and testing services to the community. 

High school and college students interested in health careers in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, physical therapy, or health administration are invited to volunteer for the event.  “This is a wonderful opportunity for both high school and college students to network with health professionals and pharmaceutical companies,” says Robert Kakos, assistant coordinator of the event.  “To gain admission to medical or dental school, or a quality health program; students will need to demonstrate community involvement and secure recommendation letters.  Volunteering at this event will go far in helping students reach their dreams.”

Dr. Basil Brikho, Chairman of the CAAHP agrees with Dr. Kakos.  The two are working together to form student chapters of the CAAHP to encourage, support, and expose students to opportunities in health care.  

Those interested in volunteering for the event are asked to e-mail RobertKakos@yahoo.com the times they are available to assist between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 8.

The American Red Cross will be present at the event giving Chaldeans the opportunity to save a life by donating blood.  The event will feature free gifts, medical workshops, free health screenings, eye examinations, consultations, and equipment. 

Workshops and services will focus on health matters relevant to the Chaldean commmunity.
