Mandarin-Speaking Residents needed for Health Fair
APAMSA, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, at the Duke School of Medicine is looking for medical residents who speak Mandarin Chinese to volunteer with our Virtual Chinese Health Fair that is occurring Thursday May 27th from 3-5 pm virtually over Zoom. The Health Fair targets the local Chinese population in Durham and is being advertised via various community leaders.

The fair will start with multiple video lectures on relevant health issues in the Asian community (i.e. depression, COVID, diabetes) and will be followed by short one-on-one consults with doctors. Your responsibility would be to engage in these short 5 to 10 minute discussions with an individual or family to answer any questions about the lecture content or in general. You would be supervised under Dr. Amy Lee (Med-Peds). For more information please reach out to Nicky Chung nicky.chung@duke.edu.
