On September 22, 2019, BAPS Charities hosted the 16th annual community health fair in Toronto. Over 400 individuals attended and more than 70 physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals donated their time to advise participants on preventative care, tips to improve general health, and tips to improve mental wellbeing. Partner organizations, including representatives from William Osler Health System and the Arthritis Society were also in attendance throughout the day. This Fair was one of over 40 Health Fairs held by BAPS Charities across North America for the benefit of local communities.

BAPS Charities Health Fairs provide a way to bring the community together to think about ways they can be in control of their health and wellness, and what things they can change day-to-day to make positive impacts on their health. Participants learned about: dental and oral hygiene, eye health, hearing, diabetes, blood pressure, arthritis, obesity, cancer prevention, healthy eating, prescription medication, senior’s health, yoga, pranayam and much more. 

Events such as BAPS Charities’ Annual Health Fair offer opportunities for health care professionals to serve others, improve lives, and advance the welfare of communities – a constant remembrance of why they choose the career paths. Here they meet participants that are eager to learn and take preventive measures for their physical and mental wellbeing.

Special guests at the Health Fair in Toronto included Hon. Kirsty Duncan, MP for Etobicoke North, Minister of Science and Sport.

Participants left the health fair with lasting thought of self-empowerment and confidence that they can improve their health. “The information the health professionals provide at the Fair cover issues affecting people at different ages in life, and serve as a good reminder to the participants of what preventative steps they can take for lifelong health,” said Yogesh Patel, Director of BAPS Charities. 

The Health Fair is one of many efforts by BAPS Charites to promote health and wellness in local communities. BAPS Charities also hosts blood drives, bone marrow drives and health lectures across North America as well as a special Children’s Health and Safety Day focused on activities and information for young children and their parents. 

The health fair is one of many efforts by BAPS Charites to promote health and wellness in local communities. The activities of BAPS Charities are centered on improving the quality of lives of individuals and their families.
