Special Project: Sexual Health in the API Community

April 12, 2012 Leave a comment

As part of VHIO, many of us serve or will soon serve as healthcare interpreters at clinics, screenings, outreach events, medical conferences, and so on because we care about the underserved communities around the Bay Area. We understand how it’s important to be culturally aware of our patients’ sexual health and/or other life experiences when we’re interpreting for them, but how many of you have actually taken the time to consider your own sexual health?

Feel free to look at the materials our VHIO treasurer Kathy put together on sexual health communication in the API community for our last workshop on April 8th. Also check out the results from her conducted surveys!  Links are below:

Korean Community Health Services 5K

April 1, 2012 2 comments

Come support Korean Community Health Services by participating in the 5th annual 5K walk. Partnering with the Korean Daily, KCHS will receive more funding if more people attend. This is a fun event with performances, lunch, a KCHS t-shirt, a great view of Lake Merritt, and a chance to meet other VHIO members.

This year, our Korean Outreach Chairs Anita Lee and Jihwan Yu have been in charge of planning this event, along with a committee of VHIO Korean members. It will take place in the morning of Saturday April 28th, at the beginning of RRR week so it will be a nice way to relax and work out before studying!

If you’re curious to learn more about the event, you may view pictures from last year here.
