Description: NIH Health Disparities Seminar Series

The National Institutes of Health welcomes Dr. Chau Trinh-Shevrin as the featured speaker for the May 2013 NIH Health Disparities Seminar commemorating Asian American Heritage Month.

A large segment of Asian Americans face linguistic, cultural, and socioeconomic barriers to health care. Factors contributing to health disparities for this group include traditional access barriers, such as insurance status and low socioeconomic status, and barriers unique to largely immigrant groups, such as language and acculturative stress. Health disparities are particularly evident when looking at differences across racial and ethnic groups and within Asian American subgroups.

This presentation will look at Asian American health disparities, challenges related to health access and health equity, the progress that has been made to reduce health disparities in Asian American populations, and offer some key recommendations for achieving health equity among Asian American populations.

Dr. Chau Trinh-Shevrin is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Population Health and Medicine at the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine. She is founder of the NYU Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH), funded by the NIMHD. She directs the Office of Community Engagement for the NYU-Health and Hospitals Corporation Clinical and Translational Science Institute. Dr. Trinh-Shevrin is a social epidemiologist with a doctorate in public health from Columbia University, and a master's degree in health policy and management from the State University of New York at Albany.
