The future of medicine will be treatment and prevention tailored to the individual. But that future will only be realized with the engagement of diverse communities in efforts such as the All of Us Research Program - Jane L. Delgado Phd MS

If the past year of COVID-19 has shown the world anything, it’s that the task of public health is always trying to get an accurate picture of reality so that it may stop or prevent harms. Public health researchers do this through science—theorizing, gathering data, analyzing the statistics, and putting forth conclusions based on the evidence that is then subject to the scrutiny of peer review—so that the evidence, facts, and truth can guide policymakers to improve people’s health.
But what this past year has made much more evident is that we are way behind where we should be when it comes to scientific data on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. This perhaps mirrors what we are…
If science is the search for truth, then let’s get real by ensuring research actually represents who’s out there and what’s happening to them, from COVID-19 to climate change.
At the moment, health care is often one-size-fits-all. But imagine if in the future, health care could be tailored to each person. We hope to make that possible so that future generations may benefit. How? By creating a resource that allows researchers to conduct thousands of studies on health and disease.

The Center for Asian Health Research and Education was founded in October 2018 to provide a common place for research, education and clinical care support allowing disparate faculty, staff, community members and trainees to share ideas and common resources. Currently, there is a lack of resources and community. In particular, given the nature of Asian Health research, multi-disciplinary groups are needed.
