Recap: KCSC Health Fair, SCUP Conference, and GGSF Health Fair

The first week of October flew by in the blink of an eye! While the temperature continues to drop, AAHI has been busy reaching out to our communities!

On Saturday October 1, AAHI attended the Korean Community Service Center Health Fair held at Global Mission Church. AAHI provided health education and osteoporosis screening for attendees at the health fair.

On Friday Oct 7, AAHI was at the Montgomery County Public School (MCPS)'s Annual School Community United in Partnerhsip (SCUP) Conference in support of this year's conference theme "All Together Now... Our Journey to Community!" The event was well attended and many attendees were interested in our mental health photonovel and Wheel of Health Education on mental health.

Then on Sunday Oct 9, AAHI provided bone density screening and general health education at the American Diversity Group and Guru Gobind Singh Foundation Health Fair. Our health promoters were able to provide outreach and education on topics such as hepatitis B, blood pressure, diabetes, and mental health. County Executive Ike Leggett visited our Resource Table during the event too!
