A colleague at the Harvard School of Public Health asks me to spread the word about an event sponsored by African Community Health Initiatives. ACHI connects African in Massachusetts to health and social service. It not only helps many people overcome barriers and receive care, but it also facilitates the delivery of services by providers to African immigrants.
The event is a brunch on October 3, from 11am to 2pm at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Boston. Featured speakers are Amadou Diagne, Associate Director of Medical Sciences at Gilead Sciences, Inc., and Frederica Williams, President and CEO of Whittier Street Health Center. Admission to this fund-raising event is $75, which you can send to PO Box 120094, Boston, MA 02112. More information is available at achi_org (at) yahoo (dot) com.
