Pilipinx Americans are the third largest Asian American ethnicity, yet continue to be disproportionately understudied, invisibilizing the health disparities they contend with.

Visiting scholars will give flash talks on health equity for Pilipinx American communities, promoting wellness and cultural reclamation. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend on Thursday, April 25th from 12 to 1 p.m. in SSW 305.
