Every June, WIM / MedSpan sponsors a health-themed street fair featuring local music, food, art projects, theater and games along with health awareness programs. This event is now a tradition born in 2012 with the inaugural event conceived by international artist Miralda to celebrate the opening of the new clinic building on South Street and the culturally rich neighborhood.
Throughout the year, WIM / MedSpan sponsors free seminars and workshops on specific prevalent health topics such as nutrition for adults and children for the prevention of diabetes mellitus, colon cancer, blood pressure, and other current issues such as teenager pregnancy, HIV and STD. These are held at The Annex, the ground floor of the old clinic building on Roebling Street.
FUPAC has served Dominican Republic communities since its founding with doctors of different medical specialties assisting patients in need; and beginning 2015, in Haiti (Cap Haitien). Dr. George, Drs. Rebecca Raoof and Nabil Raoof have participated several years. Dr. Caro is actively involved in all projects to date with doctors and dentists.
ART & LIFE
Through the generosity of artists affiliated with the clinic and friends, the walls have been hung with a lively selection of their artwork. Complementary activities, workshops and exhibitions were organized at The Annex, with the intention of bringing together the young and the old to share their multi-generational experiences and partake in the ever-growing and enriching cultural influx of the city.
