SWLAHEC Hosting 30-Year Anniversary Celebration Memorial Day Weekend
SWLA Area Health Education Center (SWLAHEC) has a lot to celebrate. First, this year marks their 30th Anniversary of improving the health of our community. Second, Memorial Day honors the fallen men and women in our Armed Forces especially those from SWLA. SWLAHEC is a federally designated nonprofit organization that trains the next generation of healthcare workers committed to making a difference and providing affordable and quality healthcare to everyone.
They provide a wide variety of services to the community such as W.I.C., HIV/Aids awareness, promote pediatric dental care, SNAP, and connect area residents to high-quality healthcare services. For more information on their many services and programs or have questions on how to apply call (800)435-2432 or swlahec.com. Their goal is to break down health inequities facing underserved communities and the students living within.
This Memorial Day weekend the public is invited to join 107 Jamz, and our sister station 92.9 The Lake at the SWLAHEC 30-Year Anniversary Celebration. The fun begins at 11 am on Saturday, May 28, 2022, at 603 Pujo Street in Lake Charles. This is a free community event complete with great music, BBQ, Kona Ice, and much more! In addition, anyone wanting to get the Flu Shot, the COVID-19 vaccine or would like to get a COVID booster to stop by. For more info about the May 28, 2022 event, view the flyer below.
