Overview:

The Asian population has grown rapidly in the nation over the last decade, presenting major challenges in healthcare to provide culturally-appropriate care and eliminate healthcare disparities. Over half of the Asian community are immigrants with unique cultural and language needs. In light of that, the Asian Health Institute at the University of California, San Francisco launched the Asian Health Symposium series in 2012 with the aim to educate healthcare providers on the specific health and healthcare needs of Asian patients.

The 8th Annual Asian Health Symposium will highlight several specific areas for this unique community, including cancer treatment, infectious disease, diabetes, and hypertension, with special emphasis on the differences in the care of Asian patients. In addition, the topics of healthcare technology, addiction, and various healthcare initiatives will be addressed.

This unique symposium is one of the very few CME programs in the nation that can help bridge the knowledge and practice gaps of the healthcare community in treating Asian patients, especially the disadvantaged immigrants, on the many diseases and health issues that have significant impacts on them.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Designed for family and primary care physicians, internists, and specialists, as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who face the unique health care needs and challenges of their Asian patients.
