John Chin, Associate Professor, City University of New York
Dr. John Chin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Urban Affairs and Planning at Hunter College, CUNY. He has devoted his
research to the role of community institutions in community planning and
delivery of social and health services, particularly to underserved
communities such as immigrants and minorities. He is also interested in
how key community-based institutions shape values and norms,
particularly in relation to controversial or sensitive topics like HIV.
Legacy Pilot Project: Hepatitis B Services in Smaller Cities with Emerging API Populations
Dr. Chin examined the availability of hepatitis B services in smaller cities with emerging AAPI immigrant populations. The study surveyed health and social services providers in 30 small cities with rapidly growing Asian immigrant populations to assess the availability and need for hepatitis b services as well as to understand the institutional facilitators and barriers to implementing these services. The results of this study fills a critical gap in the current understanding of health issues for immigrants in cities small and large.
