Drawing Out Our Identity Stories: Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Raising Awareness in the Health Professions

Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) face many challenges in health professions. This workshop will be facilitated by two graduate students and a faculty mentor in the Department of Speech Language Pathology. The first part consists of a 15-min focus group discussion related to attitudes and perceptions about the AAPI community and the representation of the AAPI community with health professions being offered at Monmouth University (e.g., Speech-Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Social Work). The second part consists of reading stories from AAPI members related to systemic racism and drawing illustrations to represent these stories.
