The NIHHC not only offers free health screenings, but also offers educational classes where individuals can learn more about their health condition and treating or preventing diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. The NIHHC is an organization that is always seeking new ways to help those in need. For these reasons I want to thank the NIHHC for a job well done.”

They also provide education for those who are not aware of what the “numbers” of their screenings mean and provide the tools to lead healthier lives. Their work in our local school addresses the life threatening problems of obesity in children. The NIHHC organizes local community fairs and provides free health screenings.”

Gloria Chavarría, volunteer and staff member from Maple City

The NIHHC advocates for their health needs and has done a remarkable job especially in providing crucial screenings and referrals to the uninsured and underinsured with the many health fairs they have organized over the years. This has helped identify those at-risk for various health issues.”

Rosa Hernández, community member from Elkhart

 nihhc_august18fair_29“The NIHHC cares about low-income families and organizes health fairs once or twice a year, or as often as needed to provide much-needed services. Additionally, the NIHHC provides referrals to accessible health clinics for mammograms.”

Yumi Otsuka, NIHHC volunteer

 nihhc_august18fair_94The NIHHC does so much for the community with limited resources. If they had more resources, they would be able to purchase new equipment and provide better preventive care to the community. With a growing Hispanic population, the NIHHC’s work is very important both in the short and long term.“

Ellie Gerig, staff member from Maple City

 IMG_9904“The NIHHC is a valuable resource to the community and beyond, especially for those without a family doctor. I definitely recommend looking to this organization for help.”

 nihhc_august18fair_20“Foundations and private organizations should donate to and support the NIHHC because they care for the health of the community; your donations will allow them to continue serving the community.“
