- Passed candidacy exam—-became a PhD candidate
- Resumed Dean’s Distinguished Graduate Fellowship
Of all the panels I’ve done, this was one of the most rewarding! I had the chance to meet with dozens of AAPI youth, many of whom were still in middle school and high school, to talk about policy advocacy. It was amazing to witness the drive these students have to change their local, state, and national environments (there were almost 200 attendees!) and I’m so excited to see what they all will do.
Even during the pandemic, Asian Community Alliance is still serving the community. This month, they are holding their programs virtually in their ACA May Series—see the list of great presentations below, including one that I will give on destigmatizing mental health! Sign up link below:
I’m so honored to have been invited to speak at the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association’s (APAMSA) Region V Conference about Asian-American mental health!
The conference is still accepting research posters for those interested in showing their work with this community–apply if interested!
So excited to be facilitating my first workshop with Ohio Asian American Health Coalition! This free, public workshop will provide participants with the skills needed to be everyday advocate for mental health and mental health destigmatization. Asian-American Community Services (AACS) is collaborating with us on this event and will be presenting a workshop on human trafficking and sexual assault.
