Asian Pacific Health Foundation was invited to participate in the pilot study for Vietnamese speaking individuals.
The abstract of the work "Using Multi-Staged Translation Method to Develop Socio-culturally and Language-Sensitive Study Materials: Lessons Learned from Asian Cohort for Alzheimer's Disease" was submitted and accepted to the 2021 Alzheimer's Association International Conference.
The multi-stage translation process accounts for distinctive Asian socio-cultural-language backgrounds, providing an important guideline for AD researchers to promote health literacy in the health and general community in an effort to reduce health disparities in underrepresented groups, like Asians. In order to ensure fidelity across languages, the authors will continue validating the original English version in Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese versions in the ACAD study.
Below is a screenshot of the poster on the translation work done (a jewel piece!).
