Founded in 2003, the Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH) is a National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute for Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence dedicated to addressing health disparities among Asian Americans through research, training, and partnership. This multi-sectoral partnership of an academic medical and research center (NYU), several healthcare and public hospital organizations, and more than 55 community and government partners uses community-based participatory research (CBPR) principles as a framework for reducing health disparities in Asian American communities. Several CSAAH initiatives promote the community health worker (CHW) model to build capacity and leadership in Asian American communities. In 2009, CSAAH was awarded a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Prevention Research Center (PRC) award to build community and leadership for health promotion and disease prevention in diverse communities using the CHW model as an evidenced-based strategy. In 2014, CSAAH was awarded a CDC Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) award for improving nutrition and improving access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities in Asian American communities in the New York/ New Jersey metropolitan area.
