Community Well-being refers to an optimal quality of healthy community life, which is the ultimate goal of our initiative and all the people involved.
This initiative seeks to ensure that all members of the ethnic community receive information, education, and assistance to address their most pressing health needs. This includes having knowledge of and access to all available health services and resources.
Through our Community well being initiative we seek to improve overall health and health outcomes for all ethnic populations and reduce barriers to care. We do this by offering programs that focus on providing individuals with basic diagnostic services, individual counseling, prenatal classes for future mothers, referrals to various free health services, or services for low income and uninsured people.
We provide educational and medical services to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS, diabetes, poor birth outcomes, breast cancer, as well as offer culturally appropriate health education to health providers and medical interpreters. As part of our initiative we strive to educate community members about navigation of the health care system, and promote preventive health, empowering individuals to better their own health outcomes.
We have successfully created and managed over 15 condition-specific health programs that have assisted over 100,000 members of the immigrants and refugee communities, and have coordinated two heath coalitions, with a combined membership of over 200 individuals and health-related organizations.
