The historical erasure and invisibility of the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) community in U.S. society has real implications in the fields of higher education and health care.

APIDA subgroups are incredibly diverse with a variety of pressing challenges and needs. However, college students are often overlooked and do not receive adequate funding for institutionalized support and resources; while APIDA patients face significant barriers to accessing quality health care due to lack of insurance coverage, cultural differences, and language barriers.

In this workshop at 12 p.m. May 10, participants will develop a critical awareness of the “model minority myth” and explore how to proactively challenge and disrupt the stereotypes in their everyday lives, educational journey, and professional practice.
