FULL AGENDA

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES


Since the AANHPI Diabetes Coalition was founded in 2011 with the mission of preventing and
improving the care of diabetes in Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders through
advocacy and education about research and policies and building awareness at the community,
professional, and political levels, two notable accomplishments have been made. These are the
2011 oversampling by the CDC of Asian Americans in the NHANES study yielding data that clearly
demonstrated a high prevalence of diabetes in Asian Americans, and a change in the guidelines of
the American Diabetes Association (ADA) that calls for screening of Asian Americans for diabetes
at a body mass index (BMI) of 23 and higher. The Coalition has created a campaign, Screen at 23,
to raise awareness of the need to screen Asian Americans using this guideline.

With these accomplishments, members of the AANHPI Diabetes Coalition believe that it is
important to further the knowledge of diabetes and obesity in our communities and identify where
new research, advocacy and policies are needed to reduce diabetes disparities that are present for
nearly all subgroups of our Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander populations. It is
imperative that we move forward to identify policies and programs that have been effective in
reducing these disparities, highlight opportunities to fill gaps, and bring together stakeholders who
can make changes happen.

Screen at 23

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.

Join our network and become a part of a powerful voice of AANHPI physician leaders. Become an NCAPIP Supporter or Affiliate and lend us your voice. We have achieved many successes because of supporters and affiliates like you. This year we have been successful in raising awareness of the high prevalence of diabetes within our communities. The AANHPI Diabetes Coalition, that we staff, brought a discussion of Asian BMI to national thought leaders and policymakers. We convened roundtable discussions to develop plans to eliminate health disparities and helped launched the first ever health assessment of the six Pacific Jurisdictions with a special focus on chronic diseases and diabetes.

In 2013, we began a long term partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges. Over the next few years we are planning to launch workforce programs to support our medical students from underrepresented communities, increase the cultural competence of all future physicians and their capacity and commitment to address health disparities and practice in medically underserved communities, increase and develop AANHPI faculty and researchers engaged in academic medicine and much more.

We remain a strong voice in Washington, DC. Policymakers and the White House turn to us to better understand the impact of health policies and we bring your voice and your stories to them. We are brought to the table for discussions on key issues that impact physicians and the patients they serve. We are trusted leaders that bring a physicians voice to advocate on behalf of and with our patients.
