Community Health Fairs

Mixteca shares health information on a range of topics and offers free health screenings to community members who may not have access to health information and care. We host quarterly in-house health fairs in Mixteca, in which we provide HIV, BMI, cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure and urine analysis screenings and follow up referrals. We also partner with local churches and neighborhood groups to host a larger scale health fair in a site in the community.

Nutrition-and-Cooking-1024x681

Nutrition and Cooking Workshops

Mixteca in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension, teach the immigrant community, who are unfamiliar with the American diet and often consume fast and processed foods, learn to shop for and prepare low-cost nutritious meals. Two cycles of 8 cooking classes are offered annually. Participants sample the foods that they have prepared and take recipes that they can replicate at home. Based on the interest in this project, we have integrated nutrition information and cooking demos into the health fairs.
