COACHELLA — Uninsured families in the Eastern Coachella Valley will be able to access critical services and learn about new benefits available under the Affordable Care Act at the upcoming WeConnect Health Care Enrollment and Resource Fair.

The fair will take place Saturday, November 23, at Coachella Valley High School, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Attendees will receive healthcare and Medi-Cal application assistance and learn about money saving programs and services. They can also participate in a free healthy food giveaway and health screenings.

This wellness event is being brought to Coachella by The California Endowment’s Health Happens Here program, Building Healthy Communities of Eastern Coachella Valley, and the Intuit Financial Freedom Foundation.

WeConnect was established in 2005 by former California first lady Maria Shriver to reach uninsured Californians who are eligible for public health programs such as Medi-Cal. The healthy living campaign provides families and individuals from underserved communities with access to the resources needed to lead healthier and financially secure lives.
