Association of Vietnamese Americans (AVA) Lunar New Year Tet Festival

On Sunday, January 19th, AVA, formerly known as the Maryland Vietnamese Mutual Association (MVMA), hosted their Vietnamese Lunar New Year Tet Festival to celebrate the "Year of the Horse." The event offered a variety of cultural entertainment, festivities, and food. Many members of the Vietnamese community and several public officials, including Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, attended the event.

At AAHI's Resource Table, we provided information about breast cancer, hepatitis B, osteoporosis, diabetes, patient-physician communication, and the Affordable Care Act. We also used the Wheel of Health Education to inform community members about local resources.

We would like to thank our partners at AVA for hosting such an exciting cultural event!
