Indo-American Charity Foundation’s Health Fair A Success: Doctors provide free services to local community


SUGAR LAND: On Saturday, August 27, almost 100 patients were seen at a health fair hosted by the Indo-American Charity Foundation (IACF).

Patients began lining up as early as 7:30 a.m. even though the health fair was not scheduled to begin until 8 a.m. For four hours, patients of all ages came to see three doctors who would provide free consultations for their respective specialties at the ACE Pain Management Center/Medwin Family Medicine & Rehab Clinic in Sugar Land.

Dr. Surya Raghuthu of ACE Pain Management provided guidance and tips to those dealing with chronic pain. Dr. Manjula Raghuthu, a family physician, gave assistance to patients dealing with a variety of health issues or those who just needed a regular check-up. Dr. Purvi Parikh, a dentist who is also an IACF board member, also donated her services with free dental check ups.

IACF holds similar health fairs throughout the year by partnering with other organizations and doctors. This was IACF’s second health fair of 2016. These health fairs not only provide benefits through doctor check-ups and testing, but also create a safe environment for people to address health concerns they may be avoiding.
