ORSP Small Grant Recipients Presented Their Research At Google

Professors Anoshua Chaudhuri (Economics), Yeon-Shim Lee (Social Work) and Grace Yoo (Asian American Studies) presented at Google on May 23, 2018 on their research, “Experiences Of Chinese, Filipino, Indian And Korean H1B Visa Workers In The United States: Caring For Family Abroad.” Chaudhuri, Lee and Yoo are recipients of a 2015 ORSP Collaborative Award.

With the growth in engineering and technology industries, the United States has seen an increase in the arrival of highly skilled H1B visa workers from various Asian countries.  Limited research exists on highly skilled temporary workers on how they maintain family ties from afar including the caring of aging parents. There collaborative research explores the following questions  1) What types of care do H1B Visa workers provide from afar for an aging parent? 2) What challenges do these workers incur when providing care from a distance? They collected 874 surveys and conducted 53 in-depth interviews and are currently working to write up their findings as a book manuscript.   Student research assistants on this project have included Aditi Grossman, Jane Hwang, Chen Chen, Eunjae Kim and Ashwini Shridhar.
 


Finding and Evaluating Online Resources

The number of Web and social media sites, along with mobile apps, offering health information about complementary and integrative health approaches (often called complementary and alternative medicine) grows every day. Your search for online health information may start at a known, trusted site, but after following several links, you may find yourself on an unfamiliar site. Can you trust this site?

SF In the Mix: A Research Collaboration Between SFSU and UCSF

Please join us for an evening team science event to encourage cross-institutional collaboration between the University of California San Francisco and San Francisco State University. For this second of our new ‘In the Mix’ series, developed to foster faculty interaction between UCSF and SFSU and support a research collaboration pipeline between the two institutions, the theme is ‘Broader Impacts’.

We will welcome Drs. Wallace Marshall, Mark Chan, and Frank Bayliss from the cross-institutional Center for Cellular Construction, an NSF Science and Technology Center, to speak about the Center’s outreach efforts and broader impacts. This Center, whose mission is to turn cell biology into an engineering discipline by learning how to engineer the physical structure and interactions of living cells, represents one of several successful collaborations between UCSF and SFSU.

Eisman Award for Engaged Scholarship

Named in honor of Dr. Gerald (“Jerry”) Eisman, a new Eisman Award for Engaged Scholarship provides university-wide recognition of highly engaged community-based scholarship collaborations that positively impact both the community and research/creative works endeavors.  This award will be announced at the ICCE Awards Ceremony on April 12, 2018, and the first nomination process will begin in Fall 2018.  Jerry Eisman is former Director of ICCE who has a long-standing reputation as a change agent and demonstrates active involvement in the community.  The Eisman Award for Engaged Scholarship will be given annually to one full-time, tenured/tenure track faculty or lecturer who has research or creative scholarship as part of their required duties.  Priority will be given to T/TT faculty who exhibits commitment to civic engagement and/or community service learning as part of their professional achievement and growth.
