Our Mission

The Center for Asian Health Research and Education was founded in October 2018 to provide a common place for research, education and clinical care support allowing disparate faculty, staff, community members and trainees to share ideas and common resources. Currently, there is a lack of resources and community. In particular, given the nature of Asian Health research, multi-disciplinary groups are needed.

At Stanford, no other centers are significantly investigating and developing educational/clinical care for Asians. Stanford has advantages over other Universities in this area of health research, education and care due to unique patient, faculty/staff and student Demographics, Disease, Epidemiologic/Health economics and humanities expertise.
