Description: NIH Health Disparities

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and liver cancer are severe health problems among Korean Americans. Most Korean Americans are neither screened nor vaccinated against HBV due to substantial access barriers. Nearly 80 percent of Korean Americans attend churches regularly, making churches ideal venues for promoting HBV prevention and intervention. The presentation will highlight a unique community-academic-clinical partnership of academic researchers and Korean church partners, to use community-based participatory research approaches to address HBV issues and health care access barriers encountered by underserved Korean communities. Dr. Ma will share progress of the project, discuss the roles and contributions of church partners, as well as challenges and lessons learned for how to sustain intervention programs in a Korean church environment.

Dr. Grace X. Ma is a tenured full Professor in the Department of Public Health and Director of Center for Asian Health, College of Health Professions at Temple University. Dr. Ma's research focuses on community-based participatory intervention research (CBPR), early detection, patient navigation of Hepatitis B, cancers and chronic illnesses, smoking cessation, access and quality of healthcare in medically underserved, uninsured and high-risk Asian American populations. In 2000, Dr. Ma founded the Center for Asian Health, one of the first in the nation dedicated to reducing cancer and other health disparities among Asian Americans. Dr. Ma in partnership with Asian community leaders co-founded the first Asian Community Health Coalition (ACHC) in the Eastern region of the U.S., including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City and Washington DC areas.
