Sikh Centre to host free health clinic in Bothell

The Sikh Centre of Seattle, located at 20412 Bothell Everett Highway in Bothell, is hosting its biannual free health camp this Sunday.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., vision, dental and general health screenings will be available. Vision exams, dental exams, teeth cleaning, dental extraction, blood pressure screening, blood sugar screening and cholesterol screening are among the services that will be offered to those who come by the center. The services are available to anyone, including those who are uninsured or underinsured.

“We have reached out to all walks of life, all community members,” Rahul Kaul, one of the health camp organizers and a director of SOCH.Center, said.

This is the sixth year the center has been organizing the free health clinics, typically held in the spring and the fall, and for this year’s spring event, they expanded it to two Saturdays. Mammograms were offered last Saturday, and there was also a blood drive.

The center’s partners in the effort to help those in need of crucial health services are Molina Health, Bloodworks Northwest, Medical Teams International and Susan G. Komen Foundation.

SOCH.Center (short for Service of Core Humanity) is an in-progress non-profit that operates out of the Sikh Centre. Its mission is to enable volunteers from all walks of life to turn their ideas to help the community into events. For more information about the health camps and other initiatives, go online to soch.center.
