Meeting Our Community’s Needs Through Collaboration with Partners
On Friday, January 29, 2010, Gardena Community Wellness & Resource Fair was presented at Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute by The Institute for Healthy Aging at Keiro, the Partners in Care Foundation, Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute, and LA Care. More than 120 people attended this event and received free health screenings, H1N1 vaccinations, and a bento lunch. In addition, they had opportunities to meet with 25 local agencies in senior care during the Resource Fair and to listen to a presentation on evidence-based programs. At the end of the presentation, Keiro volunteer coaches demonstrated a few exercises from A Matter of Balance, one of the evidence-based programs Keiro offers.
