Pride in Health Fair – Sunday, February 23

Jan 20, 2014 Comments Off on Pride in Health Fair – Sunday, February 23 by

Austin-area healthcare and wellness professionals will join together on Sunday, February 23, 2014, to show their support as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) allies for the second annual Pride in Health fair—a one-of-a-kind event designed for Austin’s LGBT community. This free event is open to everyone and offers health information, free screenings, giveaway items, raffle drawings, healthy refreshments, live music, and much more.

Exhibitors include Family Tree Dental Group, Medicine in Motion, Jack and Adam’s Bicycles, AIDS Services of Austin and many more. Attendees will be able to meet the owners and doctors, ask questions and partake in free procedures, including: HIV testing, blood sugar analysis, vision screening, chair massage, oral cancer exam, blood pressure check, and more.

Sponsored by Family Tree Dental Group, Medicine in Motion, Jack and Adam’s Bicycles and Social Edge Solution, the event will highlight several LGBT-owned and LGBT-supportive Austin organizations that offer prevention, quality of life and healthcare services.

“Even in a city like Austin, many gay men and women hesitate when seeking regular medical checkups,” said Dr. Martha Pyron of Medicine in Motion. “Some fear prejudice or discrimination, so they don’t go at all. One of our missions with this event is to make them comfortable selecting providers. We want honest conversations with all of our patients. All of the offices involved want to provide them the best possible care and understanding.”

Benefitting AIDS Services of Austin, Pride in Health will take place on Sunday, February 23, 2014, from noon to 5pm at Jack and Adam’s Bicycles at 1210 Barton Springs Rd. Applications for healthcare exhibitors are due February 1, 2013.
