The Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence Project of the Asian Pacific Health Foundation (APHF) was accepted as a poster at the 5th annual Public Health Research Day on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at the Medical Education & Telemedicine Building from 3:00 PM-5:00 PM. The Public Health Research Day is an event to connect and learn from faculty, students and researchers to improve public health locally, nationally and globally. APHF's poster title was “Assessing the Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome in San Diego”. APHF was honored to share our study with the community and hopes it raised awareness of the disease. APHF members at the event included Dr. Binh Tran, Dr. Kayla Giang, Nguyen Vo, and Tam Ho. Dr. Palmer Taylor (Dean Emeritus), Dr. Maria Rosario Araneta (Assistant Dean of Diversity and Community Partnership), Siotame Lasitani (second year medical student), and other community members visited our poster booth.
