El Monte-Rosemead Adult School
Holds Resource Fair
by Anne Donofrio-Holter
The focus of this year’s El Monte-Rosemead resource fair was on health with students able to take advantage of heart, lung, vision, diabetes, blood pressure and body fat screenings. Flu shots were also available for the students.
In addition to the screenings, more than 40 agencies gathered to share information on their services with students on a variety of issues.
“The resource fair was a great benefit to me,” said one student. “I learned a lot about not only health issues but services available to me in the community.”
“We thank everyone for their participation in our annual resource fair,” said Robin Torres, principal. “The fair provided those in attendance, not only health care screenings, but the opportunity to learn about services and resources available to them within the community.”
