Chinese Information & Service Center (CISC) has received a contract from Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to research and understand the challenges that Asian American family caregivers face.
CISC provides information, referrals, early learning and youth services, health insurance counseling and enrollment assistance, in-home care case management, family and senior centers, family caregiver support, and naturalization classes for Limited English Proficiency immigrants.
On July 23, from 10 a.m. to noon, CISC’s advisory committee for the PCORI project will host a provider engagement forum at the New Hong Kong Restaurant located at 900 South Jackson St., #203. This forum is open to social, health, and human service providers who serve Asian Americans seniors, chronic patients, and family caregivers. The advisory committee, comprising Dr. Mei Po Yip (University of Washington), Dr. Michael Woo (Kin On Community Healthcare), Amy Lee (volunteer and caregiver), Suzanne Pak (Cornerstone Medical Service), and Janice Kong and Stephen Lam (CISC), will facilitate panel and group discussions to identify top educational and support solutions.
