Monday, October 27, 2008: 2:30 PM
Asian American Pacific Islanders are a growing community that comprised 5.3% of the total U.S. population in 2005 (U.S. Census, 2005). This roundtable session will explore research projects that address the health needs of this growing, diverse population.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, the participant (learner) will be able to: 1. describe examples of a range of projects working to understand factors influencing health behavior, health care delivery, and illness outcome in AAPI communities; and 2. articulate the importance of community partnerships, health policy advocacy, and the influence of culture and cultural beliefs in addressing the health needs of AAPIs.
