The Filipino Medical Program staff will be on hand to provide attendees information about Holy Name’s programs and services, including Asian Health Services, maternity care, cancer care, hospice care, breast health, the Center for Healthy Living, gynecologic oncology and radiology, and more.

Holy Name will also offer a diabetes screening, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., at Conference Room A, followed immediately with a diabetes presentation at 3 p.m. by a certified diabetes educator and a Filipino hospitalist.

“Holy Name’s participation at Fiesta In America shows our longstanding commitment to providing education, services and culturally relevant health care to New Jersey’s diverse population,” said Michael Maron, President and CEO of Holy Name.

Holy Name is a nationally recognized leader for linguistically and culturally sensitive care to the diverse population it serves.
