Start Date: December 17, 2015
End Date: December 17, 2015

Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHOPIs) are the fastest growing racial/ethnic group in the United States and are highly diverse in their language and health needs, representing more than 50 ethnic groups and 100 languages. Nearly one million AA&NHOPIs receive care at federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), a 118% increase between 2005-2014. FQHCs provide high quality, culturally and linguistically appropriate comprehensive primary care to these and other medically underserved communities, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Because of their multi-disciplinary approach to care that addresses both clinical and non-clinical health including social risk factors, health centers play a major role in addressing racial and ethnic health disparities.
Join us for this interactive session to learn more about the role of FQHCs in reducing health disparities among AA&NHOPIs and promoting health equity. Presenters will share key findings from AAPCHO’s recently released report entitled, “Spotlight: The Health of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders Served at Federally Qualified Health Centers.” This webinar will provide participants with:
- An overview of the current patient demographics, health utilization trends and patient health outcomes at AA&NHOPI-serving FQHCs;
- Highlights of the key differences between AA&NHOPI-serving FQHCs and other FQHCs across the country; and
- A discussion of the implications of the key findings report and opportunities to improve AA&NHOPI health.
