dc.description.abstract The Population Study of ChINese Elderly in Chicago Study, or The PINE Study, is a collaborative effort between the Chinese Health, Aging, and Policy Program (CHAP) at Rutgers University, Northwestern University and several community services organizations, including Chinese American Service League, Midwest Asian Health Association (MAHA) and Xilin Asian Community Center as the main community partners. The PINE Study is an extensive study that examines the general health and quality of life of Chinese elderly in the greater Chicago area. To our knowledge, it is the largest cohort of Chinese elderly ever assembled for epidemiological research in Western countries. Between 2011 and 2013, 3,157 face-to-face interviews were conducted with elderly living in the community, ages ranging from 60 to 105. Research Goal By shedding light on the health and well-being of Chicago Chinese older adults, the goal is to improve the health and quality of life of the Chinese aging population through education, research, advocacy, policy and sustainable community engagement in the Greater Chicago Area and beyond...Data collected from the PINE Study shows that there are many concerns with health disparity issues that are found in this rapidly expanding aging US community. At present, there are very few services that cater to the need of Chinese older adults and their families, with a lack workforce able to provide appropriate care, taking into consideration their linguistic and cultural needs. This demonstrates the need for increased social and health care services in the interest of this vulnerable population. A multi-disciplinary partnership is sought to provide them with a much needed disease prevention, intervention and support strategies for successful aging.
