We have had a full calendar these past few weeks! We attended three outreach events in the community, the Chinese American Senior Association (CASSA) health fair on October 29th, the Sri Lankan Buddhist Ceremony at the International Buddhist Temple on October 30th, and the Chinese Culture and Community Service Center (CCACC) health fair on November 5th. At all of these outreach events, we helped educate the community on several health topics such as cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, hepatitis B, and community resources to name a few. At the CASSA and CCACC health fairs, we were also able to conduct bone density screenings for the community.
In addition the the outreach events, we attended and presented at the American Public Health Association 139th Annual Meeting and Exposition. We had the opportunity to conduct three oral presentations and one poster presentation. It was a wonderful opportunity for professional development.
