Grand Opening of the New Asian Health and Service Center

August 9. 2018

Yesterday, Nick was honored to speak at the ribbon cutting for the new Asian Health and Service Center (AHSC) in Southeast Portland.

AHSC opened its doors in 1983 in the basement of the Chinese Presbyterian Church. Since then, the non-profit has grown into one of the largest healthcare providers in the Portland area that specializes in culturally-specific care for our Asian and Asian-American communities.

The new Center, called the House of Love and Kindness, will serve as a permanent home for AHSC and provide healthcare and educational services. With the new Center also comes a new partnership with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, to provide support services to Chinese-American elders.

Special thanks to Board Chair Dr. Erik Szeto, CEO Holden Leung, and the entire AHSC family for their leadership persistence, and for putting on a wonderful event!
