Annual PRIDEfest Health Fair – Sunday September 29th
The 2013 PRIDEfest Health Fair will be held at the Mid-America All Indian Center on Sunday, September 29th. Similar to previous years, attendees will have access to a multitude of health information and services.
Tobacco Free Wichita Coalition will be on site to provide information about our community initiatives such as the Smoke-Free Housing Initiative, as well as to provide cessation resources and discuss the benefits of the Kansas Tobacco Quitline.
A new TFW community partner, the LGBT Health Coalition, will have information about the newly released LGBT-friendly provider directory, which is an online database of local healthcare providers, who are more up-to-date on LGBT health issues and concerns. The website is also a wealth of community resource guides such as “10 Things Gay Men Should Discuss with their Healthcare Provider”. Provider resources are also available for those who are not as familiar with LGBT concerns and would like to learn more.
Health services being provided at the PRIDEfest health fair include including Rapid HIV testing, Flu vaccinations, and Syphilis and Gonorrhea testing.
