Universal Health Aid

Fifth Annual Free Universal Health Fair


On Saturday, July 21, the volunteers of Universal Health Aid (UHA) will be transforming the Wayman D. Palmer Community YMCA into a medical center for the Sixth Annual Free Universal Health Fair.


With no cost of admission, individuals of all backgrounds are welcomed from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to partake in as many or as few of the comprehensive screening services as they choose.  The variety of medical specialties provided by local healthcare professionals ranges from dentistry to ophthalmology, cardiology to family medicine.  Blood sugar readings, cholesterol evaluations, and even school physicals are all available simply upon request.


The Toledo Chapter of UHA is made up of student volunteers who dedicate most of their summer to ensuring the success of the Health .  Volunteers coming from St. Johns Jesuit High School, Maumee Valley Country Day School, and many other local schools organize every aspect of the event from recruiting doctors to obtaining sponsorships from local businesses.  My favorite part of this clinic is the shared vision of UHA and the commitment from the doctors, volunteers, and sponsors to really help and serve all who walk through the door, says Toral Soram, co-director of this years event.


In addition to the free medical services, there will also be food and refreshments for patients to enjoy as they wait to be helped.  If one is feeling more intuitive than hungry however, there will also be a spectrum of information booths offering healthcare literature and other services for the sake of holistic treatment.


Universal Health Aid strives to improve health and lifestyle through preventative medicine, health education, and leadership development.  We believe that preemptive and educative care is the key to solving the major medical issues prevalent today, notes Steven ONeill, Associate Director of Marketing at UHA, The improvement of healthcare is a community-wide initiative that requires honest dialogue between patients and healthcare specialists.  We at the Toledo Chapter believe the Health Fair to be a prime appointment to facilitate this interaction.


Any questions should be directed towards toledo@universalhealthaid.org. Join UHA in helping to give Toledo a healthier tomorrow.
