In 2022, we resumed our Annual Fundraiser, the Caribbean Culture, Cuisine and Art Expo (CCCAE) in a virtual format after a 2-year hiatus due to COVID. This allowed us to reach a much broader audience.  

DAHEI hosted a successful virtual event – For the first time, attendees were able to participate from around the world, including the Caribbean, USA, Canada, UK and Spain.  We had an amazing line-up of speakers and exhibitors.  Thanks to the generous contributions of our donors, funds raised will support Diabetes care in Dominica, in particular, wound care to help reduce the rate of amputations.

  • We look forward to expanding even more in 2023. Registration is now open for the 2023 Caribbean Culture Cuisine and Art Expo.
  • This year, we will focus on expanding our quest for a healthier Caribbean, educating and empowering persons to “Take Control of their Health” – be an active part of the conversation about their healthcare. 

Join us for this year’s event!




1st Global Walk for Better Health

DAHEI successfully executed it’s ‘1st Global Walk for Better Health’ in partnership with the Dominica Diabetes Association, with teams in 2 locations in the US – Massachusetts and New Mexico. Proceeds from the event will go to the Dominica Diabetes Association. We look forward to expanding the event in 2023, with more teams around the world walking to raise awareness and empower individuals and families to take steps towards living healthier lives and preventing disease.
