This will be the eighth year the Anaheim Health Fair has been held and sponsored by the City of Anaheim in partnership with GBS Linens, Inc. and Anekant Community Center.  The event was first introduced to our policymakers by our event partners, Dr. Nitin Shah and Mr. Pravin Mody who have held the fair in a variety of cities throughout Orange County.

Over the years, the number of sponsors and attendees have increased dramatically, drawing more than a thousand patients. Doctors, health care professionals and volunteers all donate their time at this free one-day event. The annual FREE Health Fair is designed to assist a wide range of patients: children, college students, senior citizens and recent immigrants. The one thing many of them have in common is that they do not have health insurance.

Want to come to the FREE Health Fair but don't have a ride? Don't worry! Yellow Cab of Greater Orange County is offering free transportation to and from the Health Fair, which will be held between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Please call 714-865-0648 and mention "Health Fair" when you schedule your pick-up.
