    The "Tu Salud" Health Fair aims to provide accessible health information and services to the Latino community, promoting holistic well-being. We believe that your dental expertise and contribution can add immense value to our attendees. Dental health plays a crucial role in overall well-being, and we understand the importance of having dental professionals like you actively involved in educating and supporting the community. We have managed to bring together different hospitals, nonprofits organizations and healthcare professionals, such as Minnesota Children's Hospital, United Health Care, Hennepin County, Alzheimer’s Association, etc., to be a part of this event scheduled for October 28th. It will be a day filled with informative booths, engaging speakers, and meaningful discussions focused on empowering the Latino community with health knowledge and resources.
