Health Screening & Acupuncture
KACS regularly provides free health screening services and seminars to low-income seniors. There is nothing more important to maintaining one's health than prevention and patient education. Our volunteer nurses and doctors help screen and provide consultations for common conditions that afflict seniors, such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, cataracts, glaucoma, etc. We also provide free flu vaccinations every fall during flu season.
Beginning this year, we also became a participating location for the Matter of Balance program, which addresses fall risks and precautions for senior citizens.
Our recurrent guest speaker series covers various health topics including diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, spine conditions, and common elderly eye conditions.
Every Wednesday or Thursday, our volunteer nurses: Mi Sun Choi and No Mi Yu are available for consultation.
Every Thursday, KACS provides free acupuncture service for members with chronic pain and other various ailments. Currently, we have three acunpuncturists who volunteer their time and services: Dr. Hee Rei Park, Dr. Kyung Hee Ro, and Dr. Chul Ho Won.
