Research Report
Historically, Asian American and Native Hawaiian communities have been viewed as a monolithic group, and a lack of disaggregated data has masked the unique experiences and disparities faced by these communities. Published jointly by AAPI Data and the UCLA CHPR, this report aims to spur a more nuanced conversation about mental health among AA and NHPI populations by connecting survey data with community experiences as influenced by cultural nuances, U.S. foreign policy, and intergenerational trauma.

Screening for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in the clinical setting is set to become more commonplace with continued efforts to reimburse clinicians for screening. However, an examination of disparities in ACEs screening and related attitudes and beliefs is needed. The study uses estimates from the 2021 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS).

However, several racial/ethnic communities with higher rates of breast cancer are also those with lower rates of breastfeeding.

Journal Article
Transgender women (TW) experience significant inequities in health care access and health disparities compared to cisgender populations. Access to nontransition-related health care is understudied among TW. Authors aimed to assess the association between access to care and gender minority stress and resilience factors among TW living with and without HIV in eastern and southern United States. Data from the 2011 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) was used in this study.
