Center for Asian Health is part of Temple University's College of Health Professions. Established in 2000, the Center is one of the first in the nation dedicated to reducing cancer and other health disparities among Asian Americans. The Center's mission is to raise the physical, mental and social health of Asian Americans to the highest possible level through community-based participatory outreach and health education, research, training, dissemination and facilitating the provision of culturally and linguistically appropriate comprehensive health services. These programs provide a cultural bridge for the underserved, uninsured and low-income individuals with limited English proficiency.
