MedWorks Donates Medical Equipment to ASIA International Community Health Center

CLEVELAND—ASIA staff collected donations of medical equipment from MedWorks on Friday, January 25, 2013.   The medical supplies, which include syringes, digital fever thermometer boxes, cover sponges, and exam gloves, will be used to stock the ASIA International Community Health Center (ASIA-ICHC).

Set to open in Cleveland’s AsiaTown in Spring 2013, ASIA-ICHC will deliver comprehensive, culturally and linguistically appropriate healthcare on a sliding scale to all community members, especially those who face economic or language barriers to care.  Visit to learn more about the Center and see a list of needed medical and office equipment.
