Chien-Chi shares her personal story in navigating breast cancer and seeing the barriers that Asian women, in particular immigrant Asian women face in the healthcare system. Her journey led to the creation of an incredible non-profit, Asian Women for Health. From education to key partnerships, the organization is supporting the prevention and support needed for prevalent health issues.
Mental health is also addressed and in light of the recent hate crimes and violence against the Asian community, the need for the organization’s work in this space is critical. Asian communities are upset, depressed, isolated and scared, Chien-Chi explained in this episode. She faced a verbal attack too and when you hear the story of how she turned that situation around, you will be inspired to recognize the power we each hold to make a difference.
We talk about her personal story too and how life brought her to this calling. I think you will be emotionally moved and inspired by Chien-Chi’s story. Watch the full interview here or listen to the By Intent podcast on the following streaming platforms (Spotify, Stitcher, Soundcloud, Apple and Google).
Funds and sustaining the organization is always the biggest challenge – if you are in a position to, please donate in any way possible, small or big is always appreciated. Further info can be found below.
