Community health town hall event

Living Islands hosted a community health town hall event on April 29. We caught up with Dr. Sheldon Riklon and many of our other community partners to talk about #COVID-19, #vaccines, #tobacco, and other #health challenges facing the #Marshallese community. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect, ask questions, and speak about Marshallese health. Thank you to everyone who attended and all of our speakers who shared their work and showed how partnerships like these strengthen our community!

Together, we can make 2022 a year of better health!
