AAPI Community Resources

Large health studies can sometimes paint a rosy picture of Asian Americans in comparison with other groups. But when researchers aren't using a broad brush, the portrait can be quite different.

When viewed not as a single entity of 20 million people but as people of Korean, Chinese, Filipino, Indian or other distinct backgrounds, significant differences – and health disparities – appear. See below to find healthcare providers and mental health support that may be most cognizant of your needs.
