HEALTH FAIR

Inauguration of the MedSpan Clinic / First Health Fair – June 2012

The opening of our new facilities was celebrated by a colorful community event conceived by renowned international artist Miralda from Spain, involving the participation of all through the sharing of traditional foods and drinks, art and music.

It was also our first Health Fair with our doctors in attendance, giving advice, taking blood pressure and sharing information.

It was no coincidence that we came to Miralda for this occasion.  As an artist, he has been working for more than 40 years on the cultural manifestations and associations of food and art, creating his own rituals around particular events and celebrations.  His most festive one being the HONEYMOON PROJECT inaugurated by Mayor Koch in 1986 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.  Many global events followed this first presentation of the Engagement Ceremony between the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Columbus Monument in Barcelona, a symbolic liaison between the Old and the New World that culminated by the official wedding ceremony in Las Vegas in 1992, year of the Fifth Centenary of the Discovery of America.

For us, it was a special and successful event to also stress our nutritional program.
