Public Health Issues Among Asian & Pacific Islander Americans

Instructor: Gee,Gilbert C

WN 2007
Credits: 3

This graduate seminar examines the health of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans (APIAs) in order to more broadly inform the understanding of health disparities. The class will contrast the health of APIAs to other ethnic groups and also explore the variation in health between APIA subgroups. The class will examine the psychosocial factors that may impact APIA health, including: immigration, acculturation, community, ethnic identity, racism, and intergenerational conflict. Further, students will discuss the methodological and conceptual challenges facing the study of APIAs, especially as related to their highly clustered and numerically small representation in the U.S. Finally, we will examine the challenges and successes related to interventions with APIA communities, families, and individuals.
