The COVID-19 pandemic brought unique challenges for the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander -- or AANHPI -- community. AANHPI folks are the most likely ethnic group to live in multigenerational households, which must carefully balance lifestyle needs and COVID-19 safety. Statistics also indicate a greater prevalence of racist hate crimes against Asian Americans in the midst of the pandemic. This episode, we hear from a Vietnamese-American who quarantined with her 90-year-old mother for over a year. She shares the difficulties that she and and other members of her community faced in pursuit of a COVID-19 vaccine. Then, we hear from Dr. Tung Nguyen, Director of the Asian American Research Center on Health. He discusses some of the policy solutions for challenges faced by the AANHPI community.
