Asian Cancer Resource & Support Service (ACRSS)

Asian Cancer Support

AHSC’s Asian Cancer Support program offers a variety of language and culturally specific resources on the topics of cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and after-treatment care. Resources are provided in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese to fill the void of information available in a patient’s native language and help them better understand their diagnosis and treatment options.  

Resources Include: 

Located within ASHC’s main Portland Center (at 9035 SE Foster), the resource library provides culturally and linguistically appropriate cancer resources and educational materials in five languages: English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, and Vietnamese.

These virtual education workshops are delivered by regional healthcare leaders on topics from current cancer treatment options to coping strategies.

This pilot project funded by OHSU aims to provide culturally and language appropriate cancer nutrition and education to Cantonese-speaking cancer patients and caregivers in the tri-county region. Asian Cancer Support will deliver three nutrition classes featuring cooking demonstrations in 2022. Classes will be recorded and shared on YouTube to benefit a public audience. In the future, AHSC hopes to adapt this project to also benefit Korean and Vietnamese speaking communities.
