The ACCESS Community Health and Research Center participates nationally and
internationally in collaborative research programs and forums. Our goal is to
continue to gather and disseminate the fundamental, rare minority health
information that is needed for Metro Detroit’s Arab/Chaldean community. This
research, along with activities and events we develop in collaboration with our
partners, is intended to improve healthcare programming for minority
populations nationwide and to raise public awareness about the health issues
and disparities in our community.
The Conference on Health Issues
in Arab Communities has been a crucial medium of collecting and publishing health
data that is pertinent to Arab Americans. We have co-authored over 100 publications
in the fields of behavior and epidemiological research, including the ethnicity
and disease special supplements on Arab American health in “Introduction: Proceedings
of the 4th Biennial National Conference on Health Issues in the
Arab-American Community”(Ethnicity & Disease, Vol. 1501, Supplement 3,
February 2005, S1-VII). In 2010, the proceedings of the 5th National
Conference on Health Issues in the Arab American Community were compiled and published in the newly established journal ACCESS Health.
