Yesterday, the students had an opportunity to talk with two of our professional mentors about different topics they may have problems with. Dr. Cosca and Dr. Wong worked with students to discuss how to work with large quantities of research for their introduction and literature review. They presented different tips to help the researchers organize the different publications that may contribute to the development of their research background. Students also discussed the details the logistics of giving an interview and how to work with small numbers of participants. We’re grateful for the opportunity to get such in depth counsel from these seasoned health researchers!
What an amazing session! We had a wonderful turnout and all of the students were excited to learn about the new projects we’ll be doing as a service org. We had students from all walks of life and various backgrounds. Most importantly, we sparked some great positive energy for the future of this organization.
For those who didn’t get a chance to come, we went over the meeting schedule, potential project lines, different leadership positions, and had a discussion about the value of community health in the AA and NHPI community. If you’d like to receive the powerpoint slides from the info session, get added to the mailing list, or want to learn more about the group, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org AND like the Facebook page (scroll down for Like button) for more regular postings.
Thank you all who came out and we hope to see you again on Thursday, October 2nd, 7:00-8:30 PM, at Room TBA!
If you’ve been keeping up with all of our posts, you’ve noticed that we have a D and an S at the ends of our posts. So what does that mean?
Well, AAPIHRG is an organization on campus that is composed of two major branches: a DeCal class (with the research component) and a service organization!
So, D = DeCal and S = Service org. Look out for more wonderful posts and keep up with all of the great events we host!
Today we had an amazing work session with the students. They an opportunity to work with a veteran in the AA and NHPI research world, Professor Winston Tseng. He also teaches a course here in the Fall about Asian American and Pacific Islander Health Issues. He has graciously visited our students this session and gave every student a one-on-one session to discuss all kinds of questions about their topics and methodologies. He also brought stacks upon stacks of books and resources for the researchers! We’re incredibly grateful and excited to see how these researchers will utilize all of this invaluable information.
Previously, AAPIHRG has been mainly a DeCal but now we are now expanding into a student organization!
If you are pre-med, pre-health, interested in public health or community health, are API or from under served communities, we encourage you all to come by our 1st general meeting! We’ll be talking more about events for the semester, future projects, such as our API community health organization fair, and opportunities for leadership and development!!
Our 1st general meeting will be on September 18th from 7 to 8:30 PM in 79 Dwinelle Hall. See you then!
