The Midwest Asian Health Association (MAHA) is pleased to invite you to our annual benefit gala to be held at Furama Restaurant (2828 S. Wentworth Ave, 3/F, Chicago, IL 60616) on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 6:00-8:30pm. Our theme is “Ensuring Access to Health Care”. Funds raised from this event will help MAHA sustain the Navigator Program that has assisted thousands of medically underserved populations with access to health care. Without MAHA’s services those individuals will have difficulties gaining quality health care due to language and cultural barriers.
We will also honor the outstanding community leaders who have made great contributions to the community at the event. This year’s honorees are:
George Mui, Minority Business Development Agency-U.S. Department of Commerce
Steve Hugh: AT International
Rebecca Shi: American Business Immigration Coalition’s (ABIC)
MAHA’s mission is to reduce health disparities for the medically and underserved low-income populations in the Midwest through developing and providing culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate services, including community outreach education, screening and immunization, linkage to care, capacity building, data collection, research, and policy advocacy.
Our core community health programs include:
* Navigator Program to assist our clients with access to quality health care
* Community Mental Health Clinic to treat families, youth, and the elderly with mental health illness
* Substance Abuse Prevention Program to prevent adolescent alcohol and marijuana use
* Hepatitis B Education and Prevention Program
* Community Health Center to provide health education, health screenings, immunizations and linkages to care
* Smart Match Employment Program to help individuals with disabilities for job placement
* Patient – Centered Research Program to develop effective interventions to reduce Type II diabetes
We would be honored if you can come to participate in our event as our VIP guest. Your presence will surely promote the success of our event, and I want to thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 847-217-1688 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much for your support.
