Providing Health Services to the Community
Updated: Jun 29, 2022
On Saturday, December 11, the Oklahoma City Central Hispanic Church and the Department of Health Ministries promoted among the members and friends the norms of the church about a healthy life.
The central theme was titled “That You May Have Health,” with a complete program from Sabbath School, divine worship, and presentations in the afternoon.
Through the Oklahoma Lions Health Screening mobile van, 32 people received free medical tests including vision, glaucoma, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, lung function, and body fat composition. We had the collaboration of church volunteers led by Doris Pérez, APRN, BCNP.
Adventist hospital chaplain and psychologist Eliel Rosabal from Huguley, TX, led the Sabbath school lesson review with his wife, Leydis Rosabal, an oncological registered nurse. The divine worship message was presented by Andrea Chávez, LPC.
In the afternoon we continued with two talks. Sandra Bajaña, M.D., Ph.D. is dedicated to scientific research and presented "Science and Vaccine in the time of Covid." Additionally, the lecturer in health and nutrition, Dr. Emma Marlenis Alfaro, discussed the topic "Why We Get Sick."
The health department provided a bicycle to encourage physical activity, an Air Fryer to encourage low-fat food preparation, a personal blender, and healthy recipe books as giveaways.
