    The sponserers of the health fair did a wonderfull job providing the neceessery medical and dental care to the uninsured people from Asian countries especially from South east Asia including main land China.Hats off for their ground work and the best efforts.The minor flaw in the event is the food.The caterer TK Wu did not provide any vegetarian food except rice[I am not aware of any meat in rice also].when I asked one of the student volunteers about the TOFU dish[whether it’s veg or not],he replied it’s veg.To my horror my wife noticed a piece of meat in the Tofu dish.When I asked the volunteers about this, I didn’t get a satisfactory answer.We,me and my wife attended the event to help the volunteers of Sri Sathya Sai organisation-Ann Arbor , who ran one stall-Bone marrow donation
    I request the organisers to kindly understand that all people from Asia are non-vegetarians.you find vegetarians also in those countries and I hope the sponserers will conduct future events smoothly. or else it can be better named as SOUTH EAST ASIAN AMERICAN HEALTH FAIR but not ASIAN AMERICAN HEALTH FAIR.
    Best wishes
    Dr.Krishna Nidimoru.

      Thanks for the comment Dr. Nidimoru. I will make sure to pass your suggestion along to the student group that organized the event.
