Event description
A one-day conference on Asian American representation in healthcare data.

About this Event

Harvard Medical School's South Asian Medical and Dental Association (SAMDA) and Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) present: RepresentAsian, a one-day conference that aims to highlight health disparities in Asian American populations through the lens of data. We aim to providing a space for providers, researchers, community members, and students to learn from one another and discuss health issues relevant to their own communities.

Asian Americans are the fastest growing immigrant group in the U.S, and yet are underrepresented in health research, treatment and population. As immigrants, Asian Americans face a unique set of challenges as they traverse the intersection of their cultural upbringing with their uniquely American surroundings. Despite a powerful coalition of Asian-identifying medical professionals and healthcare workers, there are unaddressed health issues within the community.

On Saturday, August 24, RepresentAsian hopes to shedding light on these disparities through a series of keynote speakers, panels, workshops and break-out sessions. This conference will delve deeply into issues of representation through data in order to create community-specific healthcare impacts.

Conference topics include: challenges of data disaggregation within the Asian American population, disparities in cardiovascular disease risk, approaches to care for aging populations, methods of qualitative and quantitative data collection, mental healthcare delivery systems, and many more.

Your ticket includes:

  • Registration and name tag
  • Meals: breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner
  • Access to all keynotes, breakout sessions, and panels
  • Opportunities to meet and connect with healthcare professionals, students, and community organizations
