Wine at AHSC

Fairgoers were able to enjoy tastings of five different wines and take home a classy souvenir wine glass for $10. Now if they only stuck out their pinkies, they would have looked like a million bucks. Wine glasses can still be purchased by contacting Carrolyn Kubota at ckubota@awfoundation.com. Photo by Michael Jeong.

Ask Your Doctor
Got health questions? Ask Your Chinese Hospital Doctor and they will have answers. This free forum was part of the street celebration's Healthy Living Pavilion, which offered free hepatitis B screenings, blood pressure screenings hosted by Kaiser Permanente, lupus education hosted by the San Francisco Lupus Support Group, eye screenings hosted by Newman Lasik Rapid, HIV Tests hosted by the Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center, glucose tests hosted by North East Medical Services and whooping cough vaccinations hosted by CVS.

Hep B Team at AHSC. Photo by Calvin Wong

The Hep B Free team walked around the fair to raise awareness for hepatitis B. One in 10 Asian Americans is chronically infected with HBV versus one in 1,000 of the general population. 

 

In honor of May, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, OCA and Nordstrom have partnered with Hep B Free to raise awareness about hepatitis B (HBV), the leading cause of liver cancer among APAs. Take a short survey and help raise money for Hep B  Free:  nordstrom.com/APAHM. Help us reach our goal of 10,000 surveys by May 31. We're halfway there! Photo by Calvin Wong.

Community Spotlight: North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District

 

tree planting

Tree planting is just one of the services that the NOM-TL CBD provides to enhance the Tenderloin district in San Francisco.


The North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District is a community-serving nonprofit organization.  Since 2006, the NOM-TL CBD has provided enhanced cleaning services and community building events in the Tenderloin neighborhood. Providing a clean and safe environment is the primary focus of the NOM-TLCBD.  Through our service provider, San Francisco Clean City, we provide the following cleaning services: twice daily hand sweeping of sidewalks and gutters, soap and scrub down of sidewalks twice a month and sidewalk power washing once monthly.  Additionally, we provide graffiti abatement, removal of hazardous waste, targeted steam cleaning of identified "hotspots", and collection of needles throughout the district.  The NOMTLCBD strongly advocates for greater public bathroom access in the Tenderloin and partners with various city agencies to address the many challenges of the Tenderloin neighborhood. 

 

Community building activities include annual street festivals, provision of small grants to community organizations, installation of public art, such as murals and banners, creation of a neighborhood restaurant guide, installation of public seating benches and regular tree plantings.

The NOMTLCBD is a core partner of two community-based safety programs:  Safe Haven and Safe Passage. Safe Haven is a network of stores, agencies and organizations which have agreed to provide a person in distress with temporary shelter and a phone call if needed.  The Safe Haven program started with a handful of sites and has grown to over 50 sites since 2008. Each site is marked with a neon green sign that features a Safe Haven logo.  The Safe Passage program is a collaborative effort that seeks to create safe passage routes where children and seniors can walk safely to and from their activities.  The routes will be visually designated with an artistic design and monitored by volunteers and local police officers.

 

The NOMTLCBD believes that a clean and safe environment, strong community partnerships and close collaboration with city agencies will create positive change in the Tenderloin neighborhood.

We are uniquely positioned to engage plan members in behaviors that improve their health and to lower overall health care costs for health plans, plan sponsors and their members. CVS Caremark is a market leader in mail order pharmacy, retail pharmacy, specialty pharmacy and retail clinics, and is a leading provider of Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans. As one of the country's largest pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs), we provide access to a network of approximately 65,000 pharmacies, including more than 7,100 CVS/pharmacyŽ stores that provide unparalleled service and capabilities. Our clinical offerings include our signature Pharmacy Advisor(TM) program as well as innovative generic step therapy and genetic benefit management programs that promote more cost effective and healthier behaviors and improve health care outcomes.  

 

At CVS Caremark we continually achieve market-leading business results through a unified understanding of diversity and by applying that understanding to the work we do every day.  Diversity at CVS Caremark is all-inclusive and impacts every facet of our business.  While it certainly includes race and gender, we believe diversity is much more than race and gender alone.  We believe in genuine respect and understanding of all differences, similarities and complexities that exist among people.  Recognizing this allows us to fully leverage our differences and optimize our similarities. It is those qualities that result in innovation enabling us to more effectively and creatively address complex business challenges.  All CVS Caremark colleagues are committed to a culture of diversity and to exceeding our clients' expectations to lower costs and improve health outcomes.

I  began volunteering for the AHSC because:

I wanted to get more involved within the API community. I was already looking for more design projects to work on at the time, and when a friend approached me to redesign the AHSC site, I was super excited to contribute.

 

One thing I am looking most forward to at this year's celebration is:

Everything! I wasn't able to make it to the festival in previous years, so I'm looking forward to finally experiencing all that the event has to offer.

 

My favorite Asian cultural tradition is: 

Having huge family banquets

 

Favorite Asian food:

Ramen

 

Favorite Asian Pacific American Celebrities:

Far East Movement and Clara Chung!

 

I am embarrassed to admit that I:

Zone out a lot.

 

My superhero power would be:

If I could vacation with anyone, anywhere, I would go:
