On May 12th, 2018, the Asian Pacific Health Foundation (APHF) in collaboration with the San Diego Vietnamese American Lions Club provided Free Health Screening for Viral Hepatitis B and C, Hypertension, Diabetes, High Cholesterol, and Osteoporosis at Wesley United Methodist Church (5380 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92115). The event was a big success.
The mission of APHF is to advance health and wellness for the vulnerable groups in San Diego and Imperial Counties by providing health education and free community health screenings for hepatitis B and C, diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol disorders and osteoporosis at community centers. At this event, we provided these services to over 40 individuals.
We would like to express our appreciation to Rose Tran, Charter President of the San Diego Vietnamese American Lions Club, and Helen Quintamilla, District Treasurer of Lions Club International for reaching out to us and inviting us to join their health event. Our relationships with community leaders is a vital component of APHF’s mission, and this collaboration was a model for the integration of APHF services in community events.
