Asian Health & Service Center Annual Gala

October 18, 2019 

Last night, Nick was honored to speak at the Asian Health & Service Center’s (AHSC) Annual Gala 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.

With the support and partnership of OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, the new AHSC Cancer Research and Support Center will expand their care by reaching more people who are battling cancer, with an emphasis on Asian American older adults. This is yet another example of how AHSC serves our community and makes Portland a better place.

Special thanks to the Board Chair Dr. Erik Szeto, CEO Holden Leung, my dear friend Lou Savage, and the entire ASHC family for their dedication and commitment to bettering the community.
