Annual Somali Health and Wellness Fair

Havoyoco works in cooperation with the Office of Minority Health at Columbus Public Health to coordinate annual Somali Health & Wellness Fair.  The Somali Health & Wellness Fair is a day dedicated to learning about health living and community resources.  Free health screenings are offered by representatives from the local medical community and a wealth of information is available.  Participants can learn about health insurance, nutrition and diet, autism, diabetes and mental health, amongst other topics.

This annual event has been sponsored by the Global Mall and the Somali Community Association, Molina Healthcare, the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Horn of Africa Volunteer Youth Committee, Nexus Counseling Group and Columbus Public Health.

Health Insurance Enrollment

Havoyoco works within the local community to help people enroll in the Affordable Care Act.  As Certified Application Counselors, we are able to provide information about health insurance and guide community members through the application process, helping to ensure access to health care for everyone in Central Ohio.
