The Asian and Pacific Islander population represents over 30 countries and contains ethnic groups that speak more than 100 different languages! Chinese-Americans represent over 24% of the Asian-American population and are the focus audience for our guest, Gloria Zhang. She is the executive director of strategic alliances at New Tang Dynasty, an independent, nonprofit television network that provides a wide range of programs for the Chinese-American community and around the world. The network aims to educate its audience about the higher incidence of lung cancer among Southeast Asian Americans compared to White Americans. In fact, the group with the greatest increase in lung cancer is with non-smoking women. Be sure to listen to this important discussion podcast.
