Above: photo by John Hession Dr. Marie Metoyer is a retired psychiatrist and recipient of the Minority Health Coalition Award for her work to increase the availability of mental health services. Nabil Migalli is president of the Arab-American Forum, working to increase understanding between these different cultures. They recently joined forces with two colleagues in the state’s multi-cultural movement, Lillye Ramos-Spooner and Theresa deLangis, to revive an event held in the 1990s called the International Festival. Now known as People Fest, the fall event seeks to bring the state’s earlier immigrant communities, French/Canadian, Scotch/Irish and Vietnamese, together with newcomers from Sudan and Somalia. The joy of sharing music, food and dance is a common denominator of humanity.
