Dr. Betty Shabazz Health Center in East New York celebrated National Women’s Health Week with free health screenings and workshops May 11. The health fair helps to educate people in the community on how to take their medications, maintain regular doctor visits and ask the right questions when meeting with healthcare professionals, according to the Center’s Office Manager Maria Huertas.
“They’re not alone, we are here to service them and answer any questions,” she said of the community.
We talked with patients and staff at the Center and asked them about their biggest health concern.[audio: http://thebrooklynink.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/felicia_audio1.mp3]
