Xilin’s community health program provides free comprehensive educational workshops to everyone, including the underserved population. Established in 2004 with support from the DuPage County Health Department, the first major community health initiative Xilin undertook was the Women’s Breast Health Care Program. This ongoing project provides public health education and free medical preventive screenings to uninsured women and seniors. Xilin’s public health program has conducted breast care education sessions for more than 7,000 women and provided mammogram screenings to over 3,500 women, saving many lives.
In 2021, out of 500 community-based organizations in the US, Xilin was selected as All of Us Research Ambassador. It’s a research program funded by the National Institute of Health. It is inviting one million people across the US to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. Since the Pandemic, Xilin became a member of the Asian Health Equity Alliance Initiative and has formalized a COVID-19 Asian community partnership to expand screening, immunization, and mental health services.
We also offer Hepatitis B prevention and partner with medical organizations regarding free screening. In 2022, Xilin joined the collaborative community-based trial platform funded by the CDC to assess and compare the clinical efficacy of two of the most common influenza vaccines in US adults aged 18-64 years old.
