Chinatown Health Clinic Foundation 2020 Virtual Fundraiser
June 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This unique virtual fundraising event will support community-based health care services such as those provided by the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 1971, the very first Chinatown Health Fair was organized by a group of volunteers to provide health education and screenings to the medically underserved Chinese community in New York City.
Today, the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center provides Adult and Pediatric Primary Care, Mental Health, Dental, OB/GYN, and enabling services to more than 60,000 patients per year.
The Health Center has stayed open every day since the COVID-19 crisis began. Even as other doctors’ offices have closed, it has continued to provide high-quality health care for the community. In addition to staying open, it has completed over 20,000 video and phone patient visits since the crisis began.
Our community is suffering from poor health care access at this time, plus the toll of unemployment, anxiety, and crippled social services. Your support would go a long way, as the care provided by the Health Center during COVID-19 comes at great additional cost. Your dollars help ensure that care continues during and after this pandemic.
Registration is free and is required to participate in the event.
