As the Office of Community Health, we recognize that in times of crisis our most vulnerable patients are likely to become even more vulnerable.  Being prepared and able to understand and support our communities outside our hospital and clinic walls will be critical to support those of us working within these spaces.

Stop the Stigma

  • Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association – “As mentioned in our previous APAMSA national statement, we are concerned about the heightened tensions and fear that have unfortunately stemmed from this outbreak. If you have witnessed or experienced acts of xenophobia-driven violence, we also encourage you to aid in hate crime response and prevention by sharing your story at We remain hopeful that together, we can overcome these adversities and work towards improving the health of the APIA community through this difficult time”
