3195.0 Innovative Research and Practice Methodologies Addressing Asian & Pacific Islander Health Disparities
Monday, November 8, 2010: 12:30 PM - 2:00 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 three strategies to increase utilization of community assets and resources to improve access to health services, health disparities and primary and secondary prevention; and (2) Demonstrate two effective applications of technology in community-based participatory research.
