The Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program (VNMAP) and AAHI had a wonderful opportunity to provide health outreach to small businesses in the community last week. After a brief training session, six volunteers spent an afternoon talking to local businesses about the Affordable Care Act and other health resources.
The volunteers distributed brochures and flyers in various Asian languages, such as Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese. The health information was well-received by the community, and by the end of the day, they reached out to over 50 small businesses!
One volunteer stated that this was the best volunteer opportunity he has ever experienced and looks forward to the next time he can do health outreach. AAHI is encouraged to know that there are people who share our passion in promoting health in the Asian American community!
We would like to thank all of our dedicated volunteers and staff for making this opportunity possible!
