Innovative Interventions and Translational Research Addressing Asian American and/or Pacific Islander American Health

Monday, November 2, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans continue experiencing a significant disease burden. Novel efforts are underway to test culturally relevant interventions for those disproportionately affected. This session will present some of the field’s newest approaches to health promotion including strategies that integrate digital story telling and community partnerships. It will also highlight the unique considerations and challenges when enrolling Asian Americans in clinical trials. The lessons learned can inform the health promotion efforts in other ethnic minority populations.
Session Objectives: Discuss innovative and culturally-relevant intervention strategies to address relevant health issues across different Asian American and Pacific Islander American communities
