Second Grameen PrimaCare Health Fair 

We recently organized our second community health and wellness fair in Elmhurst, Queens for Grameen members, their families and friends. Over 600 people attended! Participants enjoyed healthy food and fitness demonstrations, medical and dental screenings, information on community health resources, raffle prizes and much more. We are grateful to our partners, volunteers and friends for their support in making this health fair possible.

Health and Wellness Center Space Update

We are thrilled to announce that we have secured a wonderful space in Jackson Heights, Queens where our health and wellness center, Grameen Vida Sana, will be built. Located just minutes from Grameen America's flagship branch office in Queens, the Grameen Vida Sana center will offer high-quality, affordable and comprehensive primary care and other services to Grameen members when it opens for business in 2014.

Meet the Grameen Vida Sana Member Council

To ensure that Grameen Vida Sana throughly reflects customer value, we have formed a volunteer council of ten Grameen America borrowers who are eager to contribute to our program development by providing feedback. Their valuable insight will help guide our final program development phase, enabling Grameen Vida Sana to offer a robust and unique service package that meets the most critical health and wellness needs of Grameen members.
