Sandy Tsuneyoshi and Tram Nguyen are two women with stories of how health has impacted their individual lived experiences. They are volunteer leaders of “Our Families, Our Health” APANO’s campaign to ensure that all Oregonians, regardless of their income, color of their skin, their gender identity, sexual orientation, and citizenship status have the rights and resources to be healthy. Through their interest in health equity and social justice issues, these women, along with others have become active volunteers in our vision to fight for health access for all. Check out our Campaign for Health Equity and Access and APANO’s Fight for Micronesian Health for a deeper look at the communities who are particularly affected.
We asked them why they are passionate about health equity and why they got involved with Our Families, Our Health. APANO’s goal is to achieve equitable healthcare for all, focusing on immigrants, refugees, Pacific Islanders, low-income Oregonians, and LGTBQ individuals. Sign our PLEDGE TODAY to show your support!
