Systems and Asian American and/or Pacific Islander American health
Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Contemporary healthcare environment requires an in-depth understanding of and working knowledge about complex health systems at individual, community, and policy levels. Often, intervention approaches addressing salient health issues in Asian American and Pacific Islander American communities have been implemented at the individual level. With the emergence of systems science, more deliberate efforts need to be taken to mobilize multisectoral partnerships which can lead to policy change. In this session, speakers will share their experiences as to how they partnered with varying levels of systems in the healthcare environment and for some, how they were able to achieve successful policy change.
Session Objectives: Discuss system level approaches to address Asian American and Pacific Islander American health issues
