Xilin’s public health program provides free medical screenings and education on the benefits of preventative medicine to underserved populations. Established in 2004 with support from the DuPage County Health Department, the first major public health initiative Xilin undertook was the Women’s Breast Health Care Program. This ongoing project provides public health education and free medical preventive screenings to uninsured women and seniors. Xilin’s public health program has conducted breast care education sessions to more than 7,000 women and provided mammogram screenings to over 3,500 women, saving many lives.
Our public health program offers its services at public health fairs and collaborates with other state and privately-funded screening organizations. Educational workshops are conducted at communities in DuPage and Suburban Cook counties as well. Other initiatives at Xilin include hepatitis b education, prevention and screening; bone density loss education, prevention and screening; and the PINE Project, which analyzes Chinese health, aging and policies on their well-being.
Xilin works hard to reach the community at large at various health and social fairs. There are numerous events that we attend throughout the year. If you would like more information about what health fairs we will take part, please give us a call at 630.355.4322.
