Policy Director, Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum
Priscilla Huang is Policy Director for the Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum, an organization that co-founded the nationwide Action for Health Justice along with the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations, Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC), and Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Los Angeles. Action for Health Justice is a coalition of more than 70 Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) national and local community-based organizations (CBOs) and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in 21 states. Its purpose is to leverage the efforts of national organizations with local CBOs and FQHCs to maximize ACA enrollment and outreach for AAs and NHPIs across the nation. Action for Health Justice’s partners assisted tens of thousands with ACA outreach and education using town halls, workshops, discussion groups, informational brochures, flyers, and postcards. The organization also provided hundreds of media outreach touches via social, traditional and ethnic media, and provided outreach, education and support in over three dozen different AA and NHPI and other languages.
