(Englewood, NJ, September 13, 2012) – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and The Share & Care Foundation recently teamed up to host the 5th Annual “Celebrating Indian Heritage: Health and Wellness Fair”, providing free consultations, health screenings and flu shots to the community. Dozens of Englewood Hospital's board-certified physicians donated their time and expertise to more than 200 people who came out for the event.

"This event highlights our commitment to providing the community with world-class health care right in their own neighborhood,” said Hetal Gor, MD, FACOG of Englewood Hospital. “Participants had an opportunity to sit down with our physicians to discuss their health questions and concerns, which allowed doctors from every expertise to offer invaluable, on-the-spot medical guidance to those in need.”

The crowd also enjoyed an educational lecture featuring a variety of health topics, from seasonal allergies to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, followed by a question and answer session.
