Today’s guest is a skilled and passionate community advocate.

She is a breast cancer survivor turned advocate who launched the Asian Breast Cancer Project in 2010. The ABC Project gives Asian women access to resources, education, and support during and after traumatic and difficult cancer treatments.

Motivated to lead through her own cancer experience, she continues to participate in local and national efforts on health policy affecting the Asian community. She founded Asian Women for Health, a peer-led, community-based network in 2012. Her remarkable passion for supporting her community has changed the healthcare landscape for Asian women and created a pipeline of future leaders and peer health educators.

Her efforts have been recognized numerous times, including being named one of the most influential people of color in Life Science and Healthcare in 2017 and receiving The Laurel of Community Service Award from the Cancer Prevention Foundation in 2019.

Please join me in welcoming Chien-Chi Huang.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “A great leader should have the ability to bring people together and move them toward common goals. See from your head, speak from your heart, and support others with your whole being.”
  • how she was a natural leader even in childhood, organizing the neighborhood kids.
  • her experience with breast cancer and how it catapulted her into the work she does now.
  • some of the hurdles she faced when starting a nonprofit.
  • how her name became known in her network as a verb meaning “to connect people.”
  • her role as someone who bridges the gap between the Asian community and others, and what that means to her.
