portrait, sayaliHere are two good reasons to attend the next meeting of the Metro Refugee Health Task Force, set for 9-11 am, Tuesday, October 7, at the TIES Event Center, 1644 Larpenteur Ave. W in St. Paul.

First, Shriners Hospital referral development director Erin Jurkovich will describe the pediatric orthopaedic resources available to the refugee community through Shriners.

In the meeting's second presentation, AshaUSA founder Kamala Puram and board member Sayali Amarapurkar (pictured above) will speak on South Asian culture, demographics and health status, and describe the implications for the health care system.

Formed in 2014, AshaUSA is focused on promoting health in the South Asian community — which it defines as immigrants from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
