U.S.-born Asian Americans of Korean, Chinese, and/or Japanese heritage (including multiracial individuals), who are 18 years old or older, are invited to participate in a Boston College study on experiences of racism, health, and racial identity.  The results of the study will be used to inform health initiatives aimed at improving the health of Asian Americans.

Study participants will NOT give any identifying information.¬† Participation is entirely anonymous, and no one will be able to link your a participant’s responses with his or her identity.¬† Participants will be asked questions about their previous racial experiences, as well as their current health.¬† Data will only be accessible to the researcher, her advisor, and certain regulatory agencies (e.g., the Boston College Institutional Review Board).

The 15-minute questionnaire can be completed online at:
