Thank You for an Amazing Fiscal Year!

As Fiscal Year 2016 comes to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our Steering Committee, Health Promoters, community partners, volunteers, and community members for the invaluable experiences and opportunities we had this past year! AAHI is proud of what we have accomplished together and is grateful for all your dedication and support. We look forward to working with every one of you in the coming year and cannot wait to see what is in store for us in Fiscal Year 2017. Have a great summer!

Recap: Health Promoter End-of-Year Celebration!

On June 9th, AAHI hosted our annual End-of-Year celebration for our dedicated Health Promoters. We had a great night of fun and laughter that began with icebreaker games and a potluck dinner. We also took some time to acknowledge and celebrate all of their accomplishments in Fiscal Year 2016.

As always, AAHI is very grateful of the time and effort our Health Promoters contribute. It is through their commitment that AAHI is able to reach out to the community and make an impact. As a token of our appreciation, each Health Promoter received a Certificate of Recognition during the evening.

We thank our Health Promoters for their service and we look forward to working with them again in the coming fiscal year!

Recap: Recent Outreach Events!

AAHI attended three outreach events in the community this past week!

On Sunday May 22, in honor of the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett's Asian Pacific American Advisory Group and the Office of Community Partnerships hosted the Community Resource Fair for community members to learn about local resources available. AAHI provided information on general health issues that are prevalent in the Asian American community and attendees were interested in our Wheel of Health Education on mental health.

On Wednesday May 25, AAHI attended the Rockville Senior Center Health Fair. Their health fair offered a variety of health information and services. The event was well attended and many attendees stopped by our Resource Table. Our Health Promoters provided education on several health topics including cancer, osteoporosis, heart health, mental health, and doctor-patient communication.

Then on this past Saturday May 28, AAHI joined the Asian Community Health Fair hosted by Epoch Times. AAHI was able to provide outreach and education on topics such as hepatitis B, blood pressure, diabetes, and mental health. The Wheel of Health Education on mental health was a big hit!
