        Bayani Kabataan (Youth Heroes): A Photovoice Study with Filipino Youth in Union City

        Despite the fact that Filipinos comprise the second largest group of Asian-Americans in the United States, few studies have focused on social and structural determinants of health affecting Filipino communities and Filipino youth. Photovoice is a youth-led participatory action research method that develops youth capacity to advocate for community change through data collection that can inform health interventions and policy.

        As part of the Center for Community Engagement’s (CCE) Partnership Grants Program, the CCE awarded UCSF’s School of Medicine and PRIME-US student, Bernadette Lim, with a RAPTr (Resource Allocation Program for Trainees) grant to conduct the Photovoice study.

        The research project explored Filipino youth perspectives regarding the impact of their environment – including physical space, social determinants of health, and structural forces – on their physical and psychosocial health.
