On April 15th, we attended the Montgomery College Health Fair in Rockville. This event offered a variety of health resources and services to the students and staff. AAHI provided a number of carbon monoxide screenings as well as general health information. The Wheel of Health Education was also a big hit at our Resource Information Table!
AAHI was able to go to two outreach events on April 19th! In the morning, we attended the Cambodian New Year Celebration in Silver Spring, hosted by the Cambodian Buddhist Society. There were several cultural activities as part of the celebration. Our Health Promoters provided outreach and education on several health topics, including breast cancer, hepatitis B, osteoporosis, local resources, diabetes, and patient-physician communication.
Later that afternoon, AAHI joined the Muslim Community Center (MCC) for their First Inter-Faith Health Fair in Silver Spring. Despite the windy weather, it was a heavily attended event and we were able to bring health information to over 100 people!
Thank you to Montgomery College, the Cambodian Buddhist Society, and MCC for another great week of outreach!
