Make sure she's Heard, Understood...and Challenged
Support AWFH and the community we provide to Asian women & their families!
Dear Friends & Supporters,
As 2021 draws to a close, Asian Women for Health (AWFH) has many successes to celebrate, yet at the same time, the last year has continued to cast an increasingly shocking light on disparities and outright hate faced by Asian Americans. It has become even more vital to provide a community for Asian women and their loved ones to be heard, understood....and challenged!
We are at a major inflection point and have major plans in 2022 in each of the areas defined by our core values - advocate, educate, and reciprocate - that you can directly support:
Educate - AWFH has groundwork laid to further grow EducASIANS beyond its ESOL roots. Feeding into our next tenet of “reciprocate”, AWFH is working to adapt EducASIANS with more workforce development pieces to teach professional community health advocates how to better react to and help our communities in culturally-sensitive and effective ways.
Advocate - AWFH will be driving research that also directly raises awareness among community members. As the Eastern regional lead for the NIH-funded All of Us (AoU) research program, we will highlight the importance of a more diverse biobank to ensure that researchers develop future treatments that are effective for our communities, and as an awardee of the Michael J Fox Foundation, we will also be focusing on the impact of Parkinson’s Disease on Asian American communities.
Reciprocate - We will incentivize cross pollination from EducASIANS into Achieving Whole Health to help nurture a network of professional and community health advocates that support one another with their own learned experience.
Please consider a tax-deductible $10 monthly sustaining gift, or a one time donation. With your support, we can continue offering our unique programs for free while expanding our community impact.
Together, we can keep advancing health equity for Asian women and their loved ones in Boston and beyond.
The Asian Women for Health team
