On April 14, AAHI hosted our Resource Information Table at the Bait-Ur-Rehman Mosque. We distributed general health information and education on different health topics such as cancer and mental health. We also introduced community members to different programs and services available in Montgomery County.

Over the weekend of April 15 and 16, we attended the Cambodian New Year Festival, the Sri Lankan New Year Festival, and the Wat Thai New Year Festival. As part of the New Year celebrations, there were many cultural activities and festive foods available. We distributed general health information and local resources available at our Resource Information Table. Our Health Promoters provided outreach and education on several health topics, including breast cancer, hepatitis B, osteoporosis, local resources, diabetes, and patient-physician communication. We would like to thank the Cambodian Buddhist Society, the Maryland Buddhist Viharaya, and the Wat Thai Washington, D.C. for having us!

Have you heard about Friends' Corner? Friends' Corner is one of AAHI's newest projects focusing on the health and wellness of older adults in the Asian American community. Unlike a regular workshop, Friends' Corner provides a welcoming place for older adults to gather informally and learn about health related topics and resources in a relaxing environment. We hope through this project, older adults will have the opportunity to mingle and build bonds with others in the community.
