Community Health and Resource Fair at the MHT Church
Yvonne and Minh visited every table to collect information and also to say hi.
This event was multifaceted and interesting. If you want heath and wellness information you visit the tables line along the perimeter of the room. On the other hand if you want to get your Zumba work out, you join the men and ladies in the back.
At this table you’ll find phones uniquely designed for the elderly and people with impaired vision. The phones feature big buttons for ease of visibility.
Yvonne is testing a picture phone. Like the name implies it has pictures of people that you can flip through, just like a Rollerdeck. Once you see someone you would like to call you just simply press the button on the side to dial. It’s great for those who are not good at remembering phone numbers.
