"I'm involved in the study, 'Breast cancer literacy and health beliefs related to breast cancer screening among American Indian women'. Currently, I am planning a pilot study to promote gastric cancer (GC) prevention among Korean Immigrant elders (the GC rates are 4 times higher than non-Hispanic Whites) by developing a culturally appropriate mobile health application. The findings will provide essential information to develop culturally/linguistically accommodated mobile application for the population’s GC prevention and health promotion. Also, the study will expand to the other Asian groups who also present high GC incidence rates."
