On Friday, December 11th, CHIP members headed down to Belmont Elementary School for the 2nd Annual Belmont Wellness Holiday Fair to provide blood pressure screenings to promote cardiovascular wellness in the community. We were able to screen over a hundred patients. It was great to see everyone so genuinely eager to get screened and so interested in their health. Overall, the screenings went very smoothly and the health fair was a big success. Big thanks to Ethan, Prajwal, Elaine, Power, Julianna, and Pratik for making this event so successful despite it being finals week.

"This past Saturday, we went to Golden Age Village, a retirement home in Monterey Park, to provide blood glucose and blood pressure screenings to residents. We were able to treat almost thirty patients. We were also able to partner with a local social worker to provide health information sessions to the residents regarding blood glucose and diabetes. Special thanks to Ethan Kidde, Andrew Petersen, Geoff Kusaka, and Maggie Kwok for coming out to help."

"We taught the kids about the different food groups and brought in paper plates for an arts and craft component. The children (and us!) had fun drawing our own plates of food, making sure we have a good balance of grains, proteins, and fruits and vegetables. This art activity was followed by the fourth and fifth graders presenting their plates to the younger kids. Thank you to Julianna, Prajwal, Nina, and Victor for volunteering!"

|"On Saturday, October 18, CHIP made its second visit to our newest health site WAME. With the generous help of Reverend John Cager and Reverend Swayne Cofield, MD, we were able to set up blood pressure and blood glucose screenings for members of the congregation. Following an announcement made by Rev. Cager during the service, we had around 40 patients come for screenings, which were conducted by four of our CHIP members: Pratik Doshi, Therlinder Lo, Oscar Chen, and Avneesh Sharma. We'd like to thank all the members who could make it to this event and everyone who came for screenings."
