On January 25, AAHI hosted the bi-monthly Health Promoter Training focusing on osteoporosis. The purpose of the training is to ensure our Health Promoters have the most up-to-date information on osteoporosis and understand how this condition affects the Asian American community.
During the training, our Health Promoters learn about the preventative measures community members can partake to lower their risk of getting osteoporosis. One example is to eat food that is high in calcium but is non-diary, which is suitable for Asian Americans consumption due to lactose intolerance. Health Promoters also reviewed the procedures of the bone density screening so that cleanliness can be maintained during the screening for the clients.
The training was well attended and our Health Promoters actively participated in the interactive activity. Thank you for coming!
