MISSION

To overcome social barriers, improve health and reduce health disparities for Asian Americans in Michigan.

VISION

To be the place for Asian Americans to learn about social determinants, and find help to support their health needs and concerns to improve their future health.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

We are a non-profit, non-partisan, non-religious and non-discriminatory humanitarian community organization working on health research and services to help Asian Americans meet their health needs.

THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS A HEALTH CRISIS

We initiated the COVID-19 Project with passion for our caring community

This is a special tribute to our frontline caregivers in Oakland County hospitals for the COVID-19 Project. We donated 1,500 lunch boxes, and put this poster in each hospital on the day of their luncheon.

Our Path to Success

These secrets of success help us create a wonderful foundation on the journey towards becoming successful.

COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS (CHWs)

We have a group of long-term Asian Community Health Workers (CHWs) who know their community well and are influential community leaders that can move programs.

CULTURAL COMPETENCE

We have many Asian community organizations that are our long-term partners who want to help their ethnic group. Our goals are always aligned with theirs, to help communities.

BILINGUAL WORKERS

All our CHWs are bilingual; some may speak more than one Asian language.

The Programs We Offer

Asian Center Southeast Michigan is organized to assist our community friends in maintaining good health. The Center offers comprehensive educational programs and services through out the year to maintain or improve your health.

ASIAN AMERICAN HEALTH DISPARITIES

One of our tasks is to understand health disparities among Asian Americans. Our research centers around reducing these disparities.

PUBLIC HEALTH EDUCATION

We offer broad public health education to our various communities in their own language through programs and on our web site.

HEPATITIS B NAVIGATION

We offer Hepatitis B related education, screening, vaccination and patient navigation for Asian Americans, because they have a higher incidence of this disease.

ANNUAL FLU SHOTS

We have teamed up with Walgreen to offer flu shots in the Fall when there are health fairs or any other appropriate community gatherings.

INFORMATION TRANSLATION

We collect pertinent information and translate it into different Asian languages and are able to distribute it among the Asian communities. This is especially important during health emergencies such as an epidemic.

RESOURCE ADVOCATES

When we receive calls from Asian Americans asking for help, we will try to find the help for them or direct them where to get the help. This is vital for Seniors who may have both cultural and language barriers.

Community Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our community say:
