AAPCHO and MHP Salud are collaborating to create culturally relevant material to promote healthy eating among the Filipino/a/x and Hmong communities, which are two AA subgroups that have a significant place in U.S. history, including the migrant farmworker movement. Moreover, in the context of diabetes amongst special and vulnerable populations, type 2 diabetes is a significant issue for both AA subgroups when one disaggregates data by race and ethnicity.
We gathered information through an electronic survey distributed nationally to individuals identifying within the Filipino/a/x and Hmong communities. The 19-item survey included multiple-choice items focused on food access and dietary preferences among these two communities. Survey items were translated and presented in Tagalog, Hmong, and English. Data collection spanned three weeks during April 2021, and analysis entailed running frequencies for each response.
