    “Policies, Programs and Promising Practices for AAPI Health in US Public Health Region VI”

    • The Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) population in the US is growing faster than any other racial/ethnic group.  This rapid growth has been especially dramatic in US Public Health Region VI which includes Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. 
    • Very often, the health needs of this rapidly growing and diverse population are misunderstood or overlooked. 
    • The Asian American Health Coalition/HOPE Clinic, in partnership with local public health and community organizations, will host a Regional Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Health Summit in Houston starting with a reception on Thursday evening, April 9, 2020 and continuing on Friday, April 10, 2020 at the United Way of Greater Houston, 50 Waugh Drive, Houston, TX  77007.
    • Goals of the summit are to:

    -Identify and discuss critical health needs of AAPIs in US Public Health Region VI

    -Share success stories of addressing the unique health and health care needs of AAPIs

    -Foster networking between AAPI serving organizations in US Public Health Region VI in order to build capacity and encourage new and emerging leaders

    -Develop a plan of action to address the identified gaps and services

    • Approximately 250 participants, including public health representatives, researchers, elected officials and Asian community leaders and members are anticipated
    • Local and national experts on Asian American and Pacific Islander health are invited to present.
    • Other confirmed speakers include health and community leaders from Region VI. (See agenda)
    • Breakout sessions will feature discussions on Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) health issues such as mental health/social isolation, needs of the elderly, the AAPI data gap, barriers to accessing health care, innovative approaches/techniques in serving AAPIs, and communicating health messages to AAPIs.  
    • A pre-conference networking reception to provide an opportunity for participants to network with each other and the speakers is planned for Thursday, April 9th.  
    • A copy of the proposed program follows.
