In helping, we hope the amount of vaccine administered will catch up to the amount of vaccines distributed. We believe in having as many people get vaccinated as quickly as possible before the emergence of new variants that can possibly deem the vaccine ineffective.

MEDICATION INFORMATION EVENT
Our secretary, Xiao Fen (Samantha) Zhao, Pharm. D, took an hour to be interviewed by members of aijia.us, a popular chinese website on household-related items, on commonly used over-the-counter medications to help treat mild illnesses such as cough, allergies, pain, and burns. Afterwards, she had a Q&A session with the listeners. As many patients are trying to avoid visiting their doctor or going to the hospital, she believes that providing education to the community on these medications can be helpful and valuable.
