3380.0 Innovative Research Methodologies Addressing Asian & Pacific Islander Health Disparities

Monday, November 9, 2009: 4:30 PM
As the heterogeneous Asian and Pacific Islander community continues to be come more diverse-- in terms of ethnicity, culture, time and destination of migration, languages spoken, among others-- public health methodologies must adapt to these dynamic patterns. This session will present such innovative approaches, enabling the consideration of similar initiatives to promote the health of diverse Asian and Pacific Islander populations across all regions of the United States.
Session Objectives: At the end of the session, participants will be able to: (1) Describe innovative models and community based approaches in addressing Asian and Pacific Islander health disparities, and ; (2) Identify barriers to health care quality and health equity among Asian and Pacific Islanders.
