South Asian Health Survey from UCSF
Here at SAPP, we always try to promote public health announcements and health research on concerns common to our community. Here is a request from Dr. Arnab Mukherjea of UCSF:
I am writing to request your assistance to help improve South Asian health. I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and am conducting a study to understand the health behaviors of this population in the United States.
Despite our rapid population growth and important contributions in this country, little public funds are spent on research to understand and address the unique health concerns that South Asians face. By focusing on South Asians specifically, I hope to help draw more resources to eventually help improve the health of this population. Accordingly, I am dedicating some of my time as a trainee to collect some preliminary data to support larger-scale funding of studies which prioritizes our community’s health.
It is with commitment in mind that I request your assistance. The following link provides access to a brief health survey which I am hoping you might complete at a convenient time. For your time and effort of to complete the survey, you will be entered into a raffle for a $250 gift certificate from the Apple Store. There will be multiple drawing for such prizes through the next few months.
