I am the Stephen J. McPhee, MD Endowed Chair in General Internal Medicine and Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). I am a practicing general internist with a large panel of Asian American patients and teach students and medical residents about medicine, health disparities, and community-based participatory research (CBPR). I have conducted CBPR and intervention research with Asian American populations including Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Korean, and Vietnamese Americans on cancer control, tobacco control, hepatitis B and C screening, nutrition and physical activity, and end-of-life care.
I am Director of the Asian American Research Center on Health (ARCH; www.asianarch.org), which has over 40 individual and organizational members dedicated to improving the health of Asian Americans. I am also the Co-Director of the UCSF Multi-Ethnic Health Equity Center (MERC; http://dgim.ucsf.edu/diversity/) , UCSF Dean’s Diversity Leader (http://medschool.ucsf.edu/deans-diversity-leaders) and formerly a Principal Investigator of the Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness, Research, and Training (AANCART; http://www.aancart.org/), a National Center funded by the National Cancer Institute to address cancer disparities from 2000 to 2016. Through these roles, I have addressed health disparities through research, training, and community outreach. At the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, I am Program Co-Leader of the Cancer Control Program (http://cancer.ucsf.edu/research/programs/cancer-control/) and a Steering Committee member of the San Francisco Cancer Initiative (SF-CAN; http://www.sfcancer.org/), an innovative effort to reduce cancer morbidity and mortality across an entire city. I lead the SF-CAN’s Liver Cancer Task Force (http://www.sfcancer.org/liver-cancer). I served as a Commissioner on President Barak Obama’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders from 2011 to 2014 and as the Chair of the Commission from 2014 to 2017.
