Compañeros en Salud has held its 15th annual health festival to provide the local Hispanic community and others with critical healthcare and health screening. In addition to offering health screenings during the annual festival, this volunteer driven coalition partners with nonprofit agencies to raise awareness about health and social services available in Aurora.
The Dunham Fund’s $10,000 grant helped make it possible for Compañeros en Salud to provide health screenings for hundreds of community members at the 2018 health festival and offer free healthy breakfasts for all in attendance. These screenings were offered free of charge, and nobody was turned away during this year’s event. The Dunham Fund is proud to support this valuable free community service for those who do not have health insurance or easy access to medical services.
