2011 Updates

Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is a very popular process used in health research these days. ForAsianCenter– Southeast Michigan (AC -SE MI), CBPR has been the best way to conduct research among the heterogeneous Asian American population in the state because it overcomes barriers in language and cultural differences among Asian ethnic groups. Using established groups as partners allows AC –SE MIto effectively connect with its target groups for studies and outreach programs.

AC -SE MIreceived a grant from the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) in 2010 to work on social determinants for Asian Americans. AC –SE MIcontracted community organizations from the five top populated Asian ethnic groups to carry out the study. Since then, these organizations have become long term partners withAsianCenter–SE MI.

This is how we can build an Asian health network inMichiganthat will allow us for faster and better communication on important health information that needs to be disseminated to Asian American communities. These five Asian community organizations are:

Asian Indians Michigan Association of Physicians of Indian Origin MAPI
Chinese Michigan Chinese Women Association MCWA
Filipinos Philippine Nurse Association of Michigan PNAM
Koreans Korean American Cultural Center of Michigan KACCM
Vietnamese Vietnamese American Association of Michigan VAAM

 

Now they are our long-term strategic partners on all project Asian Center – SE MI can offer.
