1199 RNs at Mount Sinai Queens attended the annual Damayan health fair on May 11, offering free health screenings in honor of Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Damayan is a grassroots organization that serves and empowers low-wage Filipino migrant workers living and working in New York City and New Jersey. At the Union headquarters in Manhattan, the 1199 API caucus mounted a display depicting the long history of Asian-American and Pacific Islander participation in the healthcare field.
