Jennifer Kawi (Nursing), as a member of the board of the state office of minority health and equity (NOMHE), was part of an AAPI listening session titled “Fatigued & Taxed: A Listening Session about the Strain and Expectations Facing Asian American and Pacific Islander Healthcare Professionals.” The session, which took place this month, was moderated by Reimund Serafica (Nursing) and was attended by colleagues, Arpita Basu (Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences) and Szu-Ping Lee (Physical Therapy), as well as by community partners. This listening session is one of NOMHE’s initiatives aimed at providing a platform for AAPI health care professionals to provide valuable insights in light of persistent and increased concerns regarding racism and microaggressions. The overall goals are to develop appropriate cultural competency training and influence public policy toward systems change via an executive order through the state office.
