Health justice is paramount to all of our efforts
American Public Health Association
We will be presenting our findings at the American Public Health Association conference in October 2021 in the Mental Health and Community Development division!
The Building Resilient Attitudes through Virtual Engagements (BRAVE) is a funded community-based participatory study by the University of Washington exploring a peer-supported, interactive webinar series for Black and Asian Americans struggling with emotional distress due to the increase of racial/ethnic discrimination since the COVID-19 pandemic.
We successfully recruited and completed our study in January 2021.
Integrative Medicine for the Underserved
We will be presenting a lecture on September 23, 2021 at the Integrative Medicine for the Underserved (IM4US) annual conference.
The lecture entitled, The Commodification of Traditional Medicine and the Movement Towards Decolonization, will share the creative health + wellness projects Influential Point has developed with community partners, and teach attendees to work towards decolonization, health justice and liberation.
The O-Word Petition

We demand that "oriental" be removed from all East Asian Medicine institutional names, acronyms, diplomas, titles, and licensing and accrediting bodies, and strongly recommend privately-owned businesses do the same. "Oriental" is a term rooted in xenophobia and white supremacy. Learn more.
