Viet Family Health is an English language website but contains bilingual resources and links to expanded materials. While educating health professionals on pertinent concerns and appropriate methods for treatment of Vietnamese patients, it additionally provides them the cultural capital to comprehend Vietnamese residents as friends and neighbors.
