Recap of Recent Events

Last week, AAHI had an exciting and eventful week in the community! Please read below for a recap of the events.

Heart Disease Lecture at Bethany Presbyterian Church
On Thursday, April 25, AAHI gave a health lecture at Bethany Presbyterian Church to educate Korean seniors about heart disease and the importance of maintaining a healthy heart. Health Promoters conducted the presentation in Korean, which included a general overview of heart disease, risk factors, prevention, and information on local screening services available to eligible County residents. A representative from our Patient Navigator Program (PNP) also joined us in sharing information on local resources to the community.
Participants were very happy to learn about AAHI services and appreciated our work in providing health education and information on local resources in their language.
