Filipino American Senior Health Assessment


The Filipino American Senior Health Assessment (FASHA) was initiated by FACHIC to evaluate specific health needs of the Filipino senior community in Chicago and to guide implementation of targeted health education programs and interventions.

Our findings have been presented at several conferences including the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health Minority Health Conference, the Society of General Internal Medicine Regional Meeting, the Chicago Clinical and Translational Science Awards for Community Engagement Poster Session and the Philippine Medical Association in Chicago: Winter 2010 Scientific Seminar Update in Medicine and Surgery.

FASHA findings will eventually be presented in a community health town hall meeting in October 2010 and has been used to develop programming and apply for funding for FACHIC programs and services.

To Participate

The FASHA interview is a 30-minute audio-taped one-on-one interview with someone from the FACHIC research team.  The interview contains questions on your background, your health history, your perceptions on the health status of your community and your opinions on the types of health programs available.  Each participant will receive brochures and other health resources upon completion of the interview.
