On Sunday, June 5, 2022, Apicha Community Health Center marched with other community-based organizations in the annual Queens Pride Parade. Leading Apicha's group was our beloved Chief Executive Officer, Therese R. Rodriguez. We had a blast celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in Queens!

In our continuous efforts to make health care accessible, our staff and volunteers distributed hundreds of free health items, including first aid kits, sunscreens, hand sanitizers, and more.
