White House #AAPIhealth Week of Action!

We always say that body image and eating disorders is a larger extension of one’s overall physical and mental health. Did you know that college age and senior Asian and Asian American women are at greater risk of living with depression or attempting suicide? 

Starting next Tuesday, January 19th, please join the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and community groups for a week of action to help Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across the country #GetCovered through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Get involved in-person and online as we remind the AAPI community to take control of their #AAPIhealth and #GetCovered!  

The deadline to #GetCovered is January 31st, 2016! Visit www.HealthCare.gov, call 1-800-318-2596 for help in 150+ languages, and find help in your community through www.LocalHelp.HealthCare.gov.

Dr. Vivek Murthy, United States Surgeon General, will be doing a call on the Affordable Care Act.

Also, our friend Angry Asian Man Phil Yu will be doing a Twitter Storm with George Takei!

Check out the resources and get your loved ones involved (the resources come in many different languages too).
