Grameen PrimaCare organized its second Health and Wellness Fair on September 21, 2013. With over 600 attendees, the health fair was a huge success and provided a great opportunity for Grameen America members to receive valuable services and access to community resources. We thank all our dedicated volunteers and partners in making this health fair a success!
