Community Health Fairs
Community Health Fairs are a great opportunity to provide health education. These activities are common within communities and are usually organized by health services or provider organizations, such as the American Cancer Society, universities, and community-based organizations. Our team will identify community-sponsored health fairs within Ponce and adjacent municipalities and participate by providing cancer health educational materials and answering questions.
To request our participation in a local health fair or other event, please contact PSM-MCC.Partnership@psm.edu.
