Dear APIC members – we, as public health researchers and advocates, have the unique chance to make a very big difference for Asians and Pacific Islander Americans. The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has issued their updated draft recommendations for adult HBV screening in the U.S. They have given HBV screening a grade of “B” for high-risk adults. This is really good news – it means that foreign-born and 2nd generation Asian and Pacific Islander Americans will finally have the chance to receive hepatitis B screening!
A great big mahalo and shout-out to everyone who turned out for the 141st Annual APHA Convention in Boston, MA.
We blew it outside the park, when 110+ participated in the API Caucus Invited Session, "Immigration Reform & the Affordable Care Act" featuring Hon. Mee Moua, President of Asian Americans Advancing Justice; Kathy Ko Chin, President & CEO of APIAHF, Jeff Caballero, Executive Director of AAPCHO, and Rhodora Ursua of NYU CSAAH, and approximately 100 participated in the 39th Annual API Caucus Social & Awards Reception featuring Fitchburg Mayor, Hon. Lisa Wong, and UCLA Fielding School of Public Health Professor Ninez Ponce, PhD, MPP. We also had a full house at the API Caucus Young Professionals and Student Breakfast featuring Anh Sawyer, Executive Director of Southeast Asian Coalition of Central Massachusetts, Felice Le-Scherban, Association for Asian Public Health Actin, Joseph Bokum Lee, Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, Nicole Ooi-ling Fink, East Coast Asian American Student Union and Jirayut "New" Latthivongskorn of Pre-Health Dreamers.
