AANHPI Health Initiative
Rethink Your Asian Drink is a campaign created by the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Health Initiative of Los Angeles. It is currently being coordinated by the American Heart Association and the Asian Pacific Islander Forward Movement.
AANHPI Health Initiative – Our Mission
The Initiative’s mission is to bring AANHPI (Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders) health issues to the forefront so they can be actively addressed and result in the elimination of health disparities in these communities, with a specific focus on Los Angeles County SPAs 3 and 4.
