Every other year, AC-SE MI will team up with Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital to offer a health expo, mainly for health education of current hot topics, information cascading and demonstration, usually no clinical services. Subjects and themes are usually trendy and often requested by the community. Nutrition, diets and exercises have usually been the theme subjects. It is usually an opportunity for Asian ethnic community organizations to work together and invite some of their associates in health services to get together and share with each other too.
Asian Center – SE MI has been offering 3 to 5 health fairs every year for the following reasons:
- Offer an opportunity of regular check up for community people who do not have health insurance

- Recruit some community people interested in health programs AC-SE MI offers
- Collect HBV screening data for our HBV prevalence study
Usually services include: blood pressure, cholesterol, fasting glucose, BMI, bone density, breast cancer and dental checking, flu shots, eye examine and HBV screening. Mostly they have been clinical services.
