11/08/16 – Promoting Cancer Health Equity for Chinese Immigrant Women: How Culture & Access to Care Intersect

Learn what breast cancer survivorship data says about culture, acculturation and disparities in cancer care among Chinese immigrant and white survivors in this Immigrant Health Initiative Seminar by Judy Huei-yu Wang, associate professor of oncology and member of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. In addition to explaining how this data led to an acupressure intervention study for Chinese immigrant survivors, she will also share her cancer screening intervention data to discuss evidence on culturally targeted interventions and solicit further discussion about health equity or justice in Chinese immigrants.
