"Sexual and reproductive health needs of Asian women will be focus of $3 million UCLA study"


NPR interviewed Dr. May Sudhinaraset about a $3 million, 5-year-long study of the reproductive health of Asian immigrant women.

NPR (SCPR/KPCC-FM) interviewed Dr. May Sudhinaraset, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health associate professor of community health sciences, about a $3 million, 5-year-long study she is leading of the sexual and reproductive health of Asian immigrant women in the United States.

“This failure to include a sufficiently diverse sample has often times perpetuated the model minority myth,” Sudhinaraset said. “Which further invisibilizes the multiple sexual reproductive health needs that Asian immigrants experience within Asian immigrant subgroups, but also between Asian immigrant subgroups.”

What's next: The five-year study will look at Asian women of different ethnicities and immigration statuses in four states to determine what type of health services they're getting and the quality of care they're receiving.
