Cherry Trees Planted!

The cherry trees donated to Jay Heritage Center by the Japan Society of Fairfield County have been planted. They arrived in time to be planted for JHC's spring opening on Saturday, May 4th, “I Love My Park Day”. 

JSFC has been approached by Rachel Prince, a first-year medical student at Quinnipiac University. She is working on a study which aims to help fill the gap in the literature investigating Asian patients and their vision health. People are needed to participate in Zoom interviews (they do not need to travel). She is seeking people of Asian descent with a clinical diagnosis of diabetes who live in CT (they do not need to be citizens of the United States). If you are interested, or know someone who might be, email Rachel at Rachel.prince@quinnipiac.edu
