La Gitana’s Feria de Salud Recap [Video]

rebAs you may recall, we had an incredible health awareness campaign called #PorTuFamilia to raise awareness and promote the single largest Latino health event in the Bronx, La Feria De Salud.

Here is part #1 of the video we took the day of the event… this is just a quick glimpse of what was an amazing event that will save lives with the information shared that day. Need I remind you all that I credit my Por Tu Familia committee with saving my life when I was diagnosed.

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.

The video recap is hosted by Interior and Lifestyle Designer Rebecca Gitana Torres. She is a creation of urban New York, who grew up “having nothing, yet having it all.” It is this same appreciation and fervor for life that makes her design house, LifeStyle Remix, so unique. She will soon be a household name… connect with her on twitter  @LifeStyle_Remix and at her blog . We are proud to have her collaborate with #TeamCapicu on behalf of Sofrito For Your Soul.

There is also a pretty cool cameo by Celebrity Chef Ingrid Hoffman, who did special healthy cooking demos in the community that day (follow her on twitter – @simplyIngrid… she is soooo cool (and a pretty good dancer too… I have video of that too).

A very special thanks to Big Dream Filmz who shot this on location… check them out by clicking (((here)))
