January 24, 2014, Brooklyn, NY… NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers recently attended a community health fair at the Trinity Lutheran Church organized by Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez. Representing LFHC were its four Affordable Care Act (ACA) counselors, joined by LFHC Brooklyn-Chinese and LFHC Dental staff. The ACA counselors were on site providing help to anyone who wanted to apply for health insurance, get financial assistance or learn how to enroll through the New York State of Health Marketplace. LFHC Brooklyn-Chinese staff provided blood pressure screenings and distributed patient education materials. In addition, oral health screenings and flu shots were provided. LFHC plans to attend another community health fair in March.
