Vietnamese Women's Health Group
Vietnamese Women's Health Group (VWHG) was established on October 6, 2010. It is scheduled to meet every Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM at our Portland office. Women of all ages are welcome and encouraged to join and participate. Members of VWHG engage in a variety of activities and programs which include educational presentations on health issues, group discussions on life experiences and personal knowledge and exercising. Participants show up each week with a big smile on their faces showing much enthusiasm stating their excitement for whatever that’s on the agenda for that day. As a small group ranging from 10 to 15 attending members each week, it has allowed members the opportunity to develop friendship and become good friends even outside of the group.
Chinese Women's Health Group
Through exercising our minds and bodies we explore the different aspects related to women’s health. The first hour consists of interactive group activities, and is then followed by a second hour of Tai Chi. It is conducted in Cantonese and meets every Friday from 9:30a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Portland.
The weekly group gathered together on Friday to celebrate Chinese New Year.
