Do it Por Tu Familia…NYC / Feria De Salud, Sept. 12th 2009

 As I mentioned to you a while back, we have created a dynamic facebook group called "Por Tu Familia" to gear up for the annual big Feria De Salud event. Please join this group today so that you can help us lend a hand to the American Diabetes Association in this vigorous task of educating our community.

Feria de Salud is an outdoor community event that is intended to reach thousands of local Latinos/Hispanics with the important message that they may be at risk for diabetes. Feria captures the festive elements of a street fair, but maintains the important aspects of choosing and managing a healthier lifestyle for the entire Latino family. The atmosphere of Feria includes music, dancing, nutritional information, cooking demonstrations, speakers on topics related to diabetes, and a variety of product and service booths.

We need your support…via volunteers, sponsorship and just spreading the word about this event. I am specifically looking for Latino organizations to link up and become a community partner in this initiative.

As I am,
