Today was our first day of outreach and research in Akhourian, Armenia. Akhourian is a town of roughly 10,000 just east of Armenia’s second largest city (Gyumri). We were able to conduct our outreach and research at the Armenian Relief Society’s Mother & Child Clinic & Birthing Center. Dr. Avagyan directs the clinic, and together with his staff gave unprecedented support. For this outreach we partnered with the Armenian-American Wellness Center, who joined the health fair to provide a number of women’s health screenings, including thyroid and breast cancer screenings.
These two organizations are wonderful partners, and we hope to be wonderful partners for them as well. Together we came together with one hope- to create better health outcomes in Armenia.
