TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Health agencies from across Northeast Kansas came together to help one community Saturday afternoon.

Fellowship and Faith Ministry hosted a bilingual, Spanish-English, health fair, to help Topeka’s Latino community.

More than 15 groups, including the Topeka AIDS Project, Kansas Children’s Services League, and the Marian Clinic for the Uninsured distributed information.

Topics such as vaccinations, nutrition, mental health, cancer, pregnancy and domestic violence were all covered at the fair.

The Topeka AIDS project administered HIV tests, and attendees were also able to have their blood sugar and pressure tested, as well as body mass index measured.

Saturday’s event was part of a Bi-National Health Week, which hopes to help thousands receive better health care.
