SSSIO members of the four Sri Sathya Sai Centers of the Greater Boston area have carried out free health fairs biannually at their newly acquired facility in Lowell, MA. The events, which offer a range of healthcare services, have served about 200-250 visitors, including many from underserved ethnic communities. The health fairs have also drawn several medical volunteers outside the Sai community. The events have been well supported by the local town administrators and community agencies.
