The Korean American Federation of North Los Angeles (KAFNLA) is hosting the third Korean Health Exhibition on Oct. 28 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Glendale Korean SDA Church (4652 Eagle Rock Blvd.).
Notably, this year’s exhibit will offer free flu shots, multiple vitamins and MRI scans.
This is the third exhibit hosted by the KAFNLA. It is also in partnership with Glendale Korean SDA Church and its medical center, which has enabled the event to be free. The examinations include various tests on thyroid and prostate. Monitoring blood pressure and testing for body fat percentage are also available. In addition, diagnosis and free flu shots will be provided.
“The KAFNLA has joined in on the efforts of Glendale Korean SDA Church to expand the size of the exhibit,” said KAFNLA chairman Choon-sik Kim. “We’re preparing to provide various diagnosis programs and services. The event has moved to a different location, but visitors will be able to check their health status at a clean and safe place.”
EZ MRI Center will provide the ticket for the free MRI scans on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets for free mammograms are also available on a first come, first serve basis.
“Many Korean-Americans in the northern region of L.A. do not have access to medical benefits,” said KAFNLA chief director Steve Park. “This is a service we’ll provide regardless of whether or not a visitor has health insurance. We hope there is no confusion over the change of venue. We hope that the senior citizens at the event will get their flu shots before it becomes too late.”
