Recap: Health Promoter Senior Health 101 Training

On February 23, AAHI hosted another bi-monthly Health Promoter Training focusing on senior health. We were fortunate to have Dr. Erin K. Smith from Aging and Disability Services, Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, as the speaker for the training. Health Coaches from the Wellness and Independence for Seniors at Home (WISH) program also joined us for the training.

Did you know that by 2040, the older population in Montgomery County is projected to grow more than double? It is important for the Health Promoters to learn about the emerging older Asian American demographics and health disparities related to aging, which allows us to better understand healthy aging and ways to think about aging more positively.

Our Health Promoters thoroughly enjoyed the training and the interactive activity. We would like to thank Erin for coming during her busy schedule and giving us such a great training!
