OVERVIEW

Texas has the 3rd largest Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) population in the United States. Frequently, the health needs of this rapidly growing and diverse population are misunderstood and overlooked.
The Houston Health Department (HHD), in partnership with Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services (HCPHES), the Asian American Health Coalition/HOPE Clinic and other community organizations, will host the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Health Summit in Houston on November 20, 2015 at the Rice Bio Science Research Collaborative, 6500 Main Street, Houston, TX 77005.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Public health representatives, researchers, elected officials and community leaders and members are welcome to attend. Local and national experts on AAPI health are invited to speak. Breakout sessions will feature discussions on AAPI health issues such as mental health, needs of the elderly, the health data gap, and refugee and immigrant health.
