Asian American Health Research Seminar


Please join us for a stimulating conversation with Hunter College health researchers from across the college’s academic units. The panelists will share their insights on the status of Asian American health in the US, the role of Asian American communities in their work and how the work can be translated for communities. The panelists are doing exciting work with diabetes prevention, cancer disparities and risk reduction, mental health and knowledge of Asian American experiences that might be used to inform community and public health interventions.
