The Center for Pacific Islander Health’s first year has been busy. It helped more than 100 Marshallese residents receive free diabetes treatment, trained 40 Marshallese to become medical interpreters and assisted several churches in planting gardens since opening last summer.

Center leaders are preparing to cap off the center’s first year with a conference that will draw about 300 Pacific Islander health care leaders to Northwest Arkansas. The Gathering for Pacific Islander Health is May 24-26 and is the first of what organizers hope becomes an annual event that could be held at different places across the country.
