The Minnesota Young Women's Collaborative:
A Culturally Responsive Community Primary Prevention Program

The Minnesota Young Women's Collaborative Program engages Asian-American/Pacific Islander college students in women's sexual health issues, while empowering the young women to be community-based participatory researchers, leaders, and social justice advocates. The program, which started in California, has been successfully implemented at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus. This year, the University of Minnesota will host it for a third year, and it will also expand to include greater Minnesota at St. Cloud State University. The project is funded by the Minnesota Department of Health's Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative.

Presenters: Melissa Kwon, Pa Lee, Chee Lor, Hedy Tripp, Sara Cronquist, National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum
