CSAAH hosts conferences on promoting health equity together with community members, providers, students, researchers, and policy makers about key challenges and opportunities facing Asian American immigrant communities in New York City.

In addition, ongoing seminars and symposiums aim to address health disparities in the Asian American community. These seminar series provide valuable resources and information for health care professionals, students and community members to learn and better understand the health concerns and challenges in the Asian American immigrant population.

2018: Dismantling Stereotypes: Changing the Narrative

On September 24, 2018, the Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH) at NYU School of Medicine’s Department of Population Health and the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) will be cohosting the Ninth Biennial Asian American (AA), Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (NHPI) Health Conference. This year’s event brings together diverse experts, community stakeholders, and practitioners from across the country to discuss and identify innovative ways to dismantle cultural misconceptions and stereotypes and to mobilize AA and NHPI communities to action to address health inequities.

Join us in New York City for an engaging day as we discuss strategies to overturn dominant narratives, learn about health disparities in underrepresented and often “hidden” AA and NHPI communities, and work to cultivate partnerships to continue promoting health equity for AAs and NHPIs. This year’s Keynote Speakers will include Dr. Howard K. Koh, MD, MPH, former Assistant Secretary of Health at the US Department of Health & Human Services and Dr. Eliseo J. Pérez-Stable, MD, Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities at the National Institutes of Health.
