New Year Celebrations

AAHI would like to wish a Happy New Year to all those who celebrated last week! On Sunday, April 14, AAHI attended both the Cambodian New Year Celebration and Sri Lankan New Year Festival.

Cambodian New Year Celebration

At the Cambodian celebration, AAHI used the Wheel of Health to educate the community on heart disease. Participants enjoyed spinning the wheel and answering questions on heart disease to win one of our small giveaway prizes! AAHI also provided health education on topics including cancer, diabetes, and local resources. Dr. Sovan Tun from the Cambodian Buddhist Society also visited the AAHI health education table.

Sri Lankan New Year Festival

At the Sri Lankan festival, AAHI conducted carbon monoxide screenings for community members. Our Health Promoters were experts in providing health education on diabetes, cancer, breast self-exam demonstrations, as well as information on local resources and services. Community members expressed their appreciation for our work in promoting health and knowledge about local resources!
