I have contracted with AREUFIT Health Services, Inc. to provide cholesterol and glucose screenings at the International Spring Festival in Lansdale, PA since 2009. The Annual International Spring Festival celebrates cultural diversity in the North Penn community through Food, family fun and the performing arts. The Festival features entertainment, multi-cultural exhibits and vendors, a family health fair, children's fun and hands-on activities as well as various food tasting, an incredible smorgasbord of international cuisine, and fabulous performances of dance and music. Festival organizers anticipate more than 5,000 people will attend this free event.
The staff and management of AREUFIT have provided over 900 festival attendees with an opportunity to "know their numbers", critical to their health. Many of these individuals are un-insured or under insured, undocumented and often have challenges with the English language. At times, there is a long line of people waiting for their turn to be screened. After providing this service for 6 years, some of the faces have become familiar as for some this is the only opportunity to obtain these screening tests. The AREUFIT screening staff treats each person with incredible respect and patience; not to mention the high level of competency in screening and the provision of pertinent health education related to screening results. Many of the individuals who have received screenings have approached me to tell me how wonderful the screening staff is and how much they appreciate the services.
Year after year, from the time I place my request for these services to the processing of final payment, the staff and management of AREUFIT are delightful to work with. They have accommodated every request, and I consider them a true partner in this important community outreach.
I would and have highly recommended AREUFIT Health Services to any organization needing screening services. It has been my pleasure to work with Jeannine Stuart and her outstanding staff!
