Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world. Can you name the first? Read to the end of this newsletter for the answer!
We answered this question as part of our Tea AppreciAsians game on Saturday, May 9. A big round of applause goes to our four participating teams, all worthy challengers who gave each other a run for their (virtual) money.
As part of the event, we honored three amazing women for their contributions and dedication to Asian Women For Health: Audrey Paek (Podcast Host & CelebrASIANS Emcee), Pata Suyemoto (Achieving Whole Health master trainer & CelebrASIANS model), and Neha Baghat (AA Mental Health Forum Co-Chair). Thank you for all you do for healthy communities!
