The Health Fair event encourages people to make personal health as priority with many health screenings and information. The event is an astonishing collaborative community effort. We are pleased to have served the Asian communities with efficacy thanks to the volunteers who assisted with interpreting and ensuring that community members were well taken care of.
The vision of AHSC is to reduce health disparities and increase access to high-quality health care for all Asians. Our Annual Community Health Fair is just one way we work to realize this vision – we also engage the community through cultural programs, focus on prevention with a range of public health programs, and promote mental health through culturally-appropriate treatment. Another opportunity to support the works of AHSC is coming up in October 14, 2016. We invite you to join us at the 33rd Annual Conference to celebrate this past year's achievements, and to learn more about the progress of our new facility in the Lents Neighborhood.
On behalf of the AHSC, thank you for your commitment and dedication to the health of the Asian community!
