Community Wellness Event and Free Health Fair - in honor of Heart Month
At Desert Gardens we host regular resident events to show appreciation to those who call us home. February 2011 was an event worthy of a press release. More info in the attachment.

In honor of Heart Month (February)-
Are the aches & pains in your legs due to poor circulation? Are you at risk for a stroke?
Many people found answers to these questions and more last month at a Community Wellness Event & Free Health Fair, hosted by Desert Gardens Community, an apartment & mini storage facility in the West Valley. This event, open to the public featured several medical & care service providers all focused on Heart Health & Wellness, in honor of heart month. Vendors onsite provided free gifts, free advice, healthy food samples and free screenings. Those in attendance could enter to win 100’s of dollars in prizes through the day. Also, Sonoran Heart provided free Vascular Screenings—a $700 value for FREE. Individual screenings included Carotid, Abdominal Aorta & Lower Extremity Vascular Ultrasounds with a private consultation with cardiolo-gist, Lorne Murray, M.D. There was such a great response from the local community & general public, that some vendors stayed onsite for an extra 2 hours after the event to accommodate the need. But the demand was so high, some people had to be turned away. Clearly this is a valuable event and a great service to the community at large. Desert Gardens owner, Cathy Oliva says, “We are more than an apartment complex! We are committed to serving our residents as well as the community as a whole.” And so, they will do it all again. All of the providers have agreed to offer another event, with even more options and services. The plan is to kick it up a notch by offering Hearing, Vision, EKG & Vascular screenings with highlights on Pre-ventative Health, Family Medicine, Childhood Obesity, Nutrition, Diabetes, Heart Health & Circulation. The next West Valley event will be in May 2011. Providers on the schedule are Sonoran Heart Cardiovascular Specialists, Med-cure Internal Medicine, Bella Vita Health & Rehabilitation Center and Senior Helpers.
