“At Family Health Centers of San Diego, we know that health often starts at home. For 16 years now, we have partnered with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health to present ¡Vive tu vida! to San Diego’s communities. This event brings participants back year after year. They have fun while learning about the importance of healthy lifestyles and enjoy meeting people from organizations who provide resources in their neighborhoods,” said Fran Butler-Cohen, CEO of the Family Health Centers of San Diego.

“Reducing health disparities requires a multi-faceted approach, including continuous preventative care and early detection. We’re honored to provide our CLINITEST® Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test to the local health fair participants as part of this effort,” said Dave Pacitti, President, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc.; Head of the Americas, Siemens Healthineers; and member of the Siemens Foundation Board of Directors. “We’re committed to advancing health equity by promoting primary healthcare, diagnostic screening, workforce training for the healthcare sector, and capital loan support for community clinics, and thrilled to support ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® in San Diego,” concluded David Etzwiler, CEO of Siemens Foundation.
