Diversity Health Fair this February 12th 2011

Do you like to learn more about other cultures? Are you interested in health and related services?

Or are you simply looking to meet new people and engage in fun activities?

February 12, 2011 is the date to mark on your calendar for the Diversity Health Fair hosted by the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC (AMSSA). AMSSA is an association of more than 75 agencies that provide services for immigrants to help them integrate into the B.C. community. They assist newcomers with developing professional skills, networking opportunities, and information resources. The organizations promote diversity, multiculturalism, multicultural health and human rights.
