The critical work that some individuals do each and every day in their communities is instrumental to keeping improving the health and well-being of their fellow community members. The Asian Health Coalition is fortunate to be able to work with such individuals from our partnering organizations and we applaud these unsung heroes who selflessly devote their efforts to better the lives of Asian Americans and set an example for others to follow.
Our Community Catalyst Spotlight is a monthly feature dedicated to sharing the stories and views of individuals from our partnering agencies who (in our opinion!) exemplify the definition of being catalysts for change.
