Addressing Diabetes and Eye Health

Did you know uncontrolled diabetes can lead to vision problems? Because of this, it is imperative to offer comprehensive eye exams and A1C level testing in one accessible location, especially in under-resourced communities.

Interns Learn and Give Back at HHI

HHI had the joy of welcoming Mica and Nisha, both international students, for our summer 2023 internship program. These interns had the opportunity to learn about working in a nonprofit, gain experience and have the opportunity to give back. Nisha summed up her experience: “This enriching experience not only shaped my academic journey but also deepened my commitment to making a positive difference in the field of public service.”
