Asian Health and Service Center

This week, we want to highlight one of our community partners, the Asian Health and Service Center.

In October we were pleased to be part of the launch of their new Asian Cancer Resource & Support Center. Dr. Erik Szeto, board chair, spoke with a panel of 8 guests about the journey of providing culturally-appropriate and language-specific cancer support.

The panel, pictured, were:

  • Jeff Hetherington, former CEO, Family Care
  • Niyati Desai, Knight Cancer Institute
  • Tamara Tellis, American Cancer Society
  • Winnie Yan, cancer survivor
  • Paula Crone, DO, Dean, Western University
  • Erin Salinas, MD, Compass Oncology
  • Mark Whiteford, MD, Oregon Clinic
  • Nick Fish, city commissioner and cancer survivor

As a palliative and hospice services provider, we are committed to working with immigrant community organizations like AHSC to enhance awareness, education and access to serious illness care. In addition, we understand the importance of presenting care in a culturally-sensitive context. We are excited to develop our partnership in cancer care as we move into 2020.
