Through her Leave-in-Service, CARE will continue to strengthen its international non-profit and academic partnerships to improve the health and care of Asians everywhere.

Seeking Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for research participation!


At UCSF, the Collaborative Approach for Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders Research and Education (CARE) seeks participants to address the gap and reduce disparities in research participation among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) through the creation of a registry of AAPI who are interested in participating in various types of research such as Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD), aging, and caregiving related research that affects our health across the lifespan. Now Stanford's CARE joined the CARE's community Advisory Board!
