Gifts to the Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education can help improve healthcare for individuals and the Asian community. Your gift provides support for our cutting-edge collaborative research and educational programs as well as our commitment to population based health initiatives, community outreach, and engagement.
Imagine if we could discover the genetic, environmental, economic, and social factors that contribute to disease and health for every Asian ethnic group. Then, imagine if we could combine these with a deep understanding of each individual to bring precision health to every patient.
Unfortunately, though, our understanding of health issues specific to Asians not only as a group, but also differentiating among Asian subgroups, is discouragingly low, in large part due to the fact that Asian health research is drastically underfunded, representing only .3% of all NIH grants awarded.
Similar to other communities of color, tremendous disparities in health outcomes and indicators also exist among the Asian community in America. They shoulder disproportionate burdens of health conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hepatitis B, and osteoporosis.
CARE's location in the San Francisco Bay Area, where one in three people is of Asian descent, provides an ideal microcosm in which all the diverse Asian subpopulations can be represented. Your gift will allow CARE to transform the care of Asians everywhere and propel Stanford to become a world leader in Asian health research and education.
