A poster, created by Hmong youth in June 2014, used to advertise the eighteenth annual health fair organized by the Hmong Health Care Professionals Coalition. The fair was held in July of 2014 at Lao Family Community of Minnesota’s Hmong Freedom Festival at Como Park.
The Hmong Health Care Professionals Coalition (HHCPC) is a partnership of Hmong public health experts based in St. Paul. Since its founding in 1995, the HHCPC has grown to become a central health resource for Minnesota’s Hmong community. Its members and volunteers conduct research, educate patients, develop best practices, and provide leadership to other health groups.
