Event Recap: Maryland Lunar New Year Tet Festival, CASSA Presentation, Health Promoter Orientation

Over the past two weeks, AAHI attended two outreach activities in the community!

On January 15, AAHI attended the Lunar New Year Tet Festival organized by the Association of Vietnamese Americans (AVA) at Northwood High School in Silver Spring. AAHI provided general health information on topics such as cancer, hepatitis B, mental health, and the Affordable Care Act at our Resource Table.

Then on January 17, AAHI presented to members of the Chinese American Senior Services Association (CASSA) at the Upper County Community Center in Gaithersburg. We provided an introduction of our projects and services to community members and also gave suggestions on other senior related resources and services available in Montgomery County.

We would like to thank AVA and CASSA for inviting us to their activities! AAHI had a great time interacting with community members.

Additionally, AAHI brought on board three new Health Promoters who attended their orientation yesterday. During the orientation, our new Health Promoters learned about AAHI and the health disparities in the Asian American community. We are excited to have new members joining our growing team and we cannot wait to go to outreach activities with you! Welcome to AAHI!
