Sorry we haven't been able to update the blog very much in the past couple weeks, but we're back! Look out for some more posts in the next few weeks about our new staff and more big events. For now, here's a recap of the events we've had in the past couple of weeks.
Chinese Cultural & Community Service Center (CCACC) Community Service Fair
On Sunday, January 29, AAHI participated in CCACC's Community Service Fair at Lakeforest Mall. Various community organizations were present to share information about their services with the community. AAHI shared information on various health topics such as cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and hepatitis B, and used the wheel of health to educate people about breast cancer.

Health Promoters gave a lecture covering basic facts about osteoporosis screening and prevention, as well as fall prevention. Other health resources were also provided at AAHI's outreach table.
