CSAAH's 6th Annual AANHPI Health Conference

 

On December 3rd 2011, the NYU Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH), in partnership with the Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF), co-hosted the 6th Annual Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) Health Conference at the NYU Farkas Auditorium.  The conference was a great success, bringing together over 110 community, academic, and government experts within an agenda-setting structure to define recommendations to promote health equity for AA and NHPIs and to help support the US Department of Health and Human Services Plan for AA and NHPI Health. 

Community, academic, and government leaders, including HHS Assistant Secretary for Health, Howard Koh, were recognized in an award ceremony for their tremendous contribution to improve AA and NHPI Health.  Final recommendations will be disseminated to strategic leaders and policymakers of the federal government to advocate for the promotion of health equity for AA and NHPI communities.
