My name is Chan Phommachanh. I am from Laos and lived in Thailand as a refugee for about four years. I then moved to the United States of America, the land of freedom. I first lived in Washington D.C. for a few years and moved to Wichita, Kansas. I graduated from Southeast High School, attended WSU and graduated from Butler County Community College. I went on to work at Hunter Health INC as a case manager and a Thai and Lao interpreter for the Asian Service Pacific Islander program. I also worked as a contract interpreter for VN Translation INC., St. Francis, and St. Joseph Hospital for over 15 years.
I’m always interested and involved with the Asian communities, and it’s my joy and experience to help people who need health care services when English is not their first language. It is my passion to educate those who need medical, immigration and/or legal services. I have been involved with Thai and Lao communities, Temples and churches for over 20 years. I am a member of the Lao and Thai associations and also have been a member of the Wichita Indochinese Center for over 15 years. I have also attended the Wichita Asian Festival events every year in October.
I love to help the Asian community and reach out to those who need help with their health care needs, and educate them about how to eat healthy and live well as part of my job. Here at Facts Not Fear ICT, we are here to serve and help all Asian communities!
I have engaged with community members by sharing information and important resources that empower them to make decisions. I’m committed to improving health outcomes in Wichita. Helping people is my expertise, specifically the Asian community.
