Interview with Stephanie Tzu-Han Chang of AWSHIP

Interview with Stephanie Tzu-Han Chang of AWSHIP

AWSHIP (Asian Women’s Health Initiative Project), is a five-year study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). It is directed by Dr. Hyeouk Chris Hahm at the Boston University School of Social Work. The project focuses on values important to Asian Americans: familial relations, health, and community. Through these lenses, the project examines the interrelation of mental, sexual, and physical health, and how culture and familial relations affect personal health practices. Specifically, “Healthy Women, Healthy Communities” will focus on factors including acculturation, family relations, depression, sexual risk behaviors, and gender inequities to determine their relation to the different subsets of personal health and risk behaviors. Since there is very little data currently on the health practices of Asian Americans, and Asian American women in particular, this study will help in the development of specific, culturally-competent programs for future generations of Asian American women in regards to mental, physical, and sexual health.

AsianBoston Media Group: Local Asian Singers w/Original Material!


Hi Everyone!

AsianBoston Media Group is looking to promote our local talented Asian singers/bands (with original material) from New England & New York City through our various media outlets and events!

For example, if we are looking for a certain song that fits a theme for an AsianBoston TV show (ABTV), Restaurant Review segment, AB Radio show (ABR), live fashion show, website, etc, we would use the song in the intro, outro, or background, depending on the situation. In turn, we will credit you and the song/songs accordingly. This could be another avenue that leads you to showcase your talent at other events and venues. We can easily use stock or commercial music, but we want to promote locally with this original plan, and potentially expand nationally and internationally accordingly.

If interested, please contact Angel at angel@asianboston.com. Please respond only if you have original songs or are in the process of creating original material.

Thank you!

Best regards,

Leo Anthony

The story is told through the eyes of an 8 year old boy, who, while attending a Chinese Summer Program, has a hand in an accident involving one of his classmates.

The producer is looking for the following:

Male - 40s to 60s, ASIAN. Speaking role, must be fluent in Cantonese. (To play a Chinese-school principal)
Male - 30s, ASIAN. Speaking role, must be fluent in Cantonese. (To play the Father of 8 year-old protagonist)
