Stop Anti-Asian Racism

In response to the rise of hate crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), healthcare leaders from RWJBH and Rutgers will discuss efforts to end racism and address health disparities in the AAPI community.

This diverse panel of speakers will share personal experiences, perspectives on the latest upsurge in anti-Asian hate crime and violence, and important efforts that the healthcare system is taking to fight racism and support the Asian community.

  • Gain greater understanding of the long history of Asian Americans in the US and the challenges with representation.
  • Recognize that NJ has one of the largest Asian communities in the US and there are unique health needs and disparities in this population.
  • Learn about efforts of RWJBH-Rutgers health system to end racism.
  • Learn about programs at RWJBH-Rutgers to provide outreach and culturally relevant care to the Asian community it serves.
  • How to be an ally and stand in solidarity to end racism for all
