On Sunday, June 3rd, a group of over 60 volunteers gathered at the Vietnamese Civic Center on 11360 Bellaire Blvd, Ste. 900, Houston, TX 77072 to host the first ever “Offer A Hand" Health Fair.  The purpose of the event was to offer free dental, eye, pharmaceutical and medical screenings to the Asian communities.  This is the largest event of its kind in Houston and involved the collaboration of 3 prominent Asian civic groups:  the Lions Club, Vietnamese Chapter (led by Mrs. Cuc Le, President), Houston Asian American Dental Society (led by Dr. Bryan Chu, President, and Dr. Thai Vuu, Community Director), and the Federation of Vietnamese Au Co Women (led by Dr. Linh Chu, Board Director).  The Vietnamese Houston Women also came out to help provide lunch for all the volunteers, and the dental students from the Dental Student Association of the University of Texas, School of Dentistry were among the helpers.

Since eight o'clock in the morning, patients started to gather at the front door of the Civic Center.  As the volunteers began to setup, news crews from four different television stations also arrived to record the event.  The TV stations were VAN TV, BYN, VietFace TV, and Houston Saigon Network.   Once the door opened, patients were welcomed and greeted by the volunteers from the Lions Club at the registration desk.  After that, they were instructed by the members of the Federation of Vietnamese Au Co Women to fill out the health history forms.  The participants were given choices of having either dental or eye exam, or both.  They were then led to the first table to have their blood pressure taken and consulted by Dr. Ban Vu and Dr. Anh Do (MDs).  Next, they were brought to the dental exam stations where 5 groups of dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists and dental students were giving thorough visual evaluation and recommendation for treatment.  Those who signed up for eye exams were escorted to the eye exam stations.  Dr. Diep Dinh and Dr. Hieu Do (optometrists) performed the exams and passed out eye drops to the patients.  Dr. Dieu-Thao Nguyen (pharmacist) also lent a hand by providing pharmaceutical consultations and gave out calcium and vitamin supplements to the elders.  She also performed blood glucose testing for those who requested.  Before leaving, patients also received tooth brushes, tooth pastes and floss, courtesy of Proctor and Gamble Company and members of the Houston Asian American Dental Society.  Overall, there were about 100 patients who received dental, eye, medical care, and vouchers for eye glasses.  The vouchers were provided by the Lions Club's fundings.

1st 2 Paragraphs, Dental School Admission, Pakistani in Canada

Coming to Canada from my native Pakistan in 2012 to begin my education at XXXX University, now that I am entering my final semester to earn my Biology degree I could not be more pleased to be working towards becoming a dentist in Quebec, since there is a shortage of dentists in our province. Serving the people of Quebec as a dentist—and especially the underserved members of our community—will provide me with the best of all opportunities to give something back to the people of Quebec, showing my appreciation for the fact that Canada has provided me with such a wonderful new home.

I was also enormously pleased to discover that one of my two native languages, Punjabi, is the third most frequently spoken native language in Quebec, after English and French. I am convinced that speaking all three of Quebec’s most frequently spoken languages, in addition to Urdu, will enable me to excel at treating the oral health needs of broad sectors of Quebec’s immigrant population, especially those who have the greatest need for oral health care and education.
