Precision Medicine and AANHPI: Not to be Left Out
As part of our work with the NIH led All of Us Research Program, we created a document that explains the concept of precision medicine to providers who serve Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander patients, putting into context the importance of taking advantage of opportunities to increase the number of AANHPI in research, and obtain the data needed to tailor treatments and prevention efforts to individual patients and improve community health. View and download the one-pager here.
As part of the Transforming Clinical Practice Medication Management and Opioid Initiative, NCAPIP joins its partner at TCPI HCDI in pledging to uphold and support evidenced based compassionate practices and interventions for those addicted to opioids. As doctors, it's our responsibility to stay informed and be able to offer good information to our patients and colleagues.

More than half of Asian Americans with type 2 diabetes, and even more Asian Americans with prediabetes, are undiagnosed. To make treatment, intervention, and even prevention of diabetes possible, we need to first ensure that it is revealed. We need to call for appropriate screening practices for Asian Americans. We need to screen at 23.
