Sherman Oaks, CA — Nov 25, 2014 / ( — The 5th annual Glendale Health Festival, organized by Armenian American Medical Society, took place on November 15, 2014 at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. The festival is always free and open to the entire community.

the questions that the attendees had. “Our participation at the Glendale Health Festival is essential, as we strive to be active in the community and give back to its members,” he said, adding “We are very concerned about the health of the community, and this festival gives us the opportunity to interact with a large number of citizens who would otherwise be unaware of different medical conditions. During this festival, we had the chance to educate the population about venous disease, its symptoms, and treatment methods.”

Attendees of the festival got to have their blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar taken, followed by a sit-down with a physician to discuss the results. Cardiologists, neurologists, podiatrists, and other specialists were also present, in case and specific questions needed to be addressed.

It wasn’t all business though; free food and entertainment were also provided, and included kids’ activities, live performances, and a healthy lunch.
