Increase awareness and access to services at Cancer Support Community of Central NJ amongst patients, survivors and family members within the South Asian Community. This is a collaborative effort to identify, develop and raise support for a project that would move us closer to being able to create open conversations around cancer within the South Asian Community.
FOR SOUTH ASIAN HEALTH
This outreach and research project aims to educate the South Asian community about their health and how to lead a healthier lifestyle. SKN Foundation volunteers participate in health fairs and community cultural events to offer nutrition and health counseling and arrange various health screenings. With primary survey based research, SKN is generating data to understand the health of South Asians. Through this initiative, the foundation is developing health education materials that are culturally sensitive and in various languages.
