Free COVID-19 testing for the Filipino and Chinese community on October 24th, from 10am-4pm! I had fun making these flyers to advertise the testings and explain more about COVID-19. I am excited to be able to help organize screenings for my community and will also be helping organize screenings for other minority communities, such as ethnic and religious minorities.
Flyers shown below were targeted toward the Filipino community.
I had the honor and pleasure of helping create these informational COVID-19 flyers (about physical and mental health) for the Filipino community. These flyers are in Tagalog, which is spoken in the Philippines, but we also created flyers in Khmer, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Lao, Hindi and English.
Of all the panels I’ve done, this was one of the most rewarding! I had the chance to meet with dozens of AAPI youth, many of whom were still in middle school and high school, to talk about policy advocacy. It was amazing to witness the drive these students have to change their local, state, and national environments (there were almost 200 attendees!) and I’m so excited to see what they all will do.
Even during the pandemic, Asian Community Alliance is still serving the community. This month, they are holding their programs virtually in their ACA May Series—see the list of great presentations below, including one that I will give on destigmatizing mental health! Sign up link below:
I’m so honored to have been invited to speak at the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association’s (APAMSA) Region V Conference about Asian-American mental health!
The conference is still accepting research posters for those interested in showing their work with this community–apply if interested!
Thank you Asian Community Alliance, Inc and Ohio Asian American Health Coalition for inviting me to present at this conference! It was great to present about destigmatization strategies in AAPI communities and connect with others passionate about mental health.
Come see my presentation on journaling as a tool for career development, reflection, and creative expression! Writing is such a big part of my life and the opportunity to hold a workshop on journaling (and bullet journaling!) is a dream come true!
So excited to be facilitating my first workshop with Ohio Asian American Health Coalition! This free, public workshop will provide participants with the skills needed to be everyday advocate for mental health and mental health destigmatization. Asian-American Community Services (AACS) is collaborating with us on this event and will be presenting a workshop on human trafficking and sexual assault.
