Don’t miss the Open Forum with facilitated breakout sessions to discuss and share ideas on how we can work together to identify gaps, needs, opportunities, priorities, and actionable goals to enhance overall health, well-being, quality of life, and advancement of AANHPI in Ohio. We are the most socio-economically heterogeneous racial/ethnic group with more than 100 different languages. The lack of disaggregated data and underrepresentation in clinical trials are among several challenges that limit our understanding of the complex risk factors. We will reconvene and conclude with strategies and initiatives for the upcoming year.

The goal of the event: This event aims to promote equity and collaborations to support the mission of the OAAHC and APIDA ERG.

  • OAAHC strives to eliminate social inequities that contribute to disparities in the quality of life of Ohio’s Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) through community research, education, and advocacy
  • One of the 4 goals of APIDA ERG is to accelerate APIDA health equity through community-focused research in partnership with community organizations and to amplify the work of APIDA-identifying researchers at The Ohio State University
