Bi-National Health Fair To Serve Thousands

The Mexican Consulate in San Bernardino is partnering with San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD), Loma Linda University, and Molina Healthcare to host one of the largest health fairs in the country this month.

The Bi-National Health Fair is on Sunday, October 29 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Indian Springs High School, where a few school buildings will be temporarily transformed into treatment areas for thousands of people seeking free medical and dental care.

A press conference about the health fair will take place on Monday, September 25 at 10 a.m. at the Mexican Consulate, 293 North D Street in San Bernardino.

The fair is the culmination of Binational Health Week, an effort to improve the health and wellbeing of the area’s Latino community.

Mexico’s Secretary of Health Dr. José Narro Robles and the Director General of IME (Institute of Mexicans Abroad–Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior) Ambassador Juan Carlos Mendoza will participate in an opening ceremony, where they will sign a declaration announcing their support for health. Ambassador Carlos Sada, Undersecretary for North America of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores) will also attend the event.

The District is looking forward to partnering with the Mexican Consulate on efforts to improve the health of all local residents.

“Health and wellness are areas of focus in our District’s own Community Engagement Plan,” Superintendent Dr. Dale Marsden said. “Good health is as important as a quality education.”

Also participating in the Bi-National Health Fair are the Tzu Chi Foundation, City of Hope, UC Riverside, and the consulates of Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Costa Rica. In addition to free medical and dental screenings, there will be health awareness and prevention activities and other community resources.

The Bi-National Health Fair is open to everyone in the community, regardless of country of origin or immigration status. Free services will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Indian Springs High School is at 650 N. Del Rosa Drive in San Bernardino.

Making Hope Happen Foundation Gala Paves Way For College Dreams

Twenty-five SBCUSD high school seniors will see their dreams of attending college begin to take shape thanks to the Making Hope Happen Foundation, which is hosting its second annual gala on Saturday, May 21.

The foundation, formed with the goal of removing financial barriers for San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) students who want to attend college and creating more opportunities for students to enroll in career pathways, will award scholarships to more than 24 students from the Class of 2016.

The May 21 Making Hope Happen Foundation Gala, held at Arrowhead Springs Resort in San Bernardino, is the foundation’s chief fundraiser <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKV3Frw31TQ> . Tickets for the black-tie-optional dinner are $250 each or $2,200 for a table of 10, and donations are tax deductible. All proceeds from the event will fund college scholarships for SBCUSD students, as well as other student-centered activities.

The gala includes a silent art auction, musical entertainment, and a buffet dinner and dessert bar. It is also an opportunity to visit the historic Arrowhead Springs Hotel, which is privately owned and normally closed to visitors.

For scholarship recipients like Arroyo Valley High School senior Miranda Munoz, the financial support of the Making Hope Happen Foundation means she doesn’t have to worry about how she will pay for books at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Miranda is nervously waiting to find out how much financial aid she will receive from her university.

“I’m very grateful to the foundation for this scholarship,” said Miranda, who will major in forensic science with hopes of a career in law enforcement. “This scholarship is going to help me so much.”

The foundation is looking for corporate donors who want to help the San Bernardino City Unified School District in its pursuit to make hope happen for its 51,000 students. Anyone interested in donating to the Making Hope Happen Foundation and attending the gala should contact the District’s Community Engagement Department at (909) 381-1294 before May 16.
