Asian Americans and Public Health

Guerin, Maggie Mae; Smith, Raymond Arthur

Asian Americans have the longest life expectancy rate of any group, as well as the lowest infant mortality rate, the lowest alcohol abuse and smoking rates, and they have made their traditional medicines increasingly popular with the larger United States population.
