APIC's Response to the 2015
State of the Union Address

By Elena Ong, APIC President & CEO and 
Chari Cohen, APIC Policy Director

The Asian & Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health (APIC) applauds President Obama’s State of the Union (SOTU) message to support families, by advancing the economy, advancing science, and improving health, health care, health care access, and environmental health, for all Americans – including Asian & Pacific Islander Americans.

In the SOTU, the President affirmed what a breakthrough year this has been for America: 

America’s economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. 

America’s unemployment rate is now lower than before the financial crisis. 

More of America’s children are graduating than ever before.

More Americans are insured than ever before.  

Indeed, America has risen from a recession freer to create our own vision for the future.

The question remains: will we accept a state of well-being where only a few do spectacularly well? 


Or will we commit ourselves to advancing a vision for health and health equity where every American will have an opportunity to live up to his/her full potential, and contribute and prosper?
