HEALTH AND JOB FAIR
Berkeley, California (Friday, March 14, 2014) - On Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 10 am - 2 pm, the Heart 2 Heart Program - in collaboration with the City of Berkeley Youth Commission - will host a "Job and Educational Fair" at the South Berkeley Senior Center, located at 2939 Ellis Street in South Berkeley. In addition to information on employment and educational opportunities, there will also be workshops on resume and interview skill development, a panel on youth employment, benefit checks (such as Health Insurance), and FREE health screenings.
Heart 2 Heart uses a holistic, community-based approach to address health inequities while preventing high blood pressure and heart disease in South Berkeley. Heart to Heart serves as bridge between community, programs, resources, and services that are neccessary to address the needs of community members. In partnership with LifeLong Medical Care, community members, and other community organizations, we provide information and resources that promote healthier living in selected Berkeley communities. This project is sponsored by Alameda County Measure A funding.
