"Let's Celebrate Health." There were over 100 people in attendance, with 80 people being women or girls, some of whom came all the way from Rockford. The event took place at the Seville in Streamwood, IL on Saturday June 30, 2012. Lao American Organization of Elgin (LAOE) collaborate with Asian Health Coalition (AHC), Illinois Public Health Association (IPHA), and Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) to present an educational session surrounding the topic of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and breast/cervical cancer.
LAOE took a bus full of Lao Americans to Springfield to raise our Lao Voices and advocate for change and resources to advance our community. The event was very historical for our community as it lays the foundation for future success and progress. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the activities. We took so many photos and was laughing with each other all day. Enjoy the photos and please share with your friends and family.
