Excerpt from Asian Fortune Article: Call to Change

Asian Americans are one of the fastest growing minority groups in Montgomery County, growing from 8.1 percent in 1990 to 13.2 percent in 2005. Asians are almost equal in size compared to Hispanics, who stand at 13.3 percent and Blacks at 14.9 percent.

However, population growth has not been matched by accessibility to quality healthcare, said Bawa. In an attempt to publicize and address these issues, the conference and National Hepatitis B Awareness Week (May 8-13) highlighted Asian Americans as one of the high-risk groups. In a briefing held on May 11th to proomote the National Hepatitis B Act on Capitol Hill, congressmen emphasized the need to screen and vaccinate 'at-risk' groups and educate people about the disease that was once so stigmatized. Dr. Ed Hsu's presentation at the conference of the AAHI Health Needs Assessment Report's Findings corroborates the congressman's concerns.
