ACCESS will honor two special Arab Americans of the Year during its 43rd Annual Dinner on Saturday, April 12, in Detroit.

A former United States secretary of transportation and an award-winning professor will be honored as Arab Americans of the Year at the ACCESS Anniversary Dinner, which takes place on Saturday, April 12, in Detroit, celebrating ACCESS’ 43 years of service in southeast Michigan and across the country.

A ground-breaking study released in January by the ACCESS Community Health and Research Center (CHRC) shows that chronic diseases, such as diabetes, equally affect Arab Americans because of cultural factors that impact healthy lifestyles. Low-income, foreign-born immigrants, also, are at a higher-risk for chronic diseases.

ACCESS is pleased to announce that Dearborn Public Schools appointed Hussein Berry as president of the Board of Education on Jan. 13. Berry was elected to the board in 2009 and is currently serving his first term.

Santa Claus will make an early stop at Salina Elementary School in Dearborn from 9:30 a.m.-noon on Thursday, Dec. 19 to make sure children of all backgrounds receive a gift this holiday season. For some children, this will be their only visit from Santa this year.
