NEW YORK — Asian Americans in New York City are worried about the rising costs of health care; language barriers remain for them even with language access laws and few health education and outreach efforts are targeting the community.

These are among the top concerns of the Asian American community, as reported by officials of Project CHARGE, a health collaborative of 15 partner organizations that have come together to address health access for Asian Americans in New York City through capacity building and health policy advocacy.

They recently released a new report, "Healing Our Health Care System: Asian American Voices for Health Care Reform," which discussed the impact of health care reform on the community.
