Placemaking: ACDC Youth Revitalize Phillips Square


This year's Summer Leadership Academy youth developed and implemented a placemaking project for Phillips Square in Chinatown where residents and visitors shared their favorite memories and qualities of Chinatown using temporary art installations designed by the youth.

The youth presented their project to the Boston Transportation Department (BTD) to make a case for preserving Chinatown, and discussed the future of development in Phillips Square. We are so proud of the inspiring work they have accomplished and look forward to creating more opportunities for young leaders to enact real changes in the community.

Watch the video documenting their project below, made by Amanda Huang.

This year's Summer Leadership Academy was run by Patty, an A-VOYCE alum, who worked to develop the curriculum and facilitate the intensive, daily workshops and placemaking projects. Great to see our former youth continuing to stay engaged. Thank you for your phenomenal work, Patty!

Boston and the Chinese Exclusion Act
Panel with Tunney Lee, Shauna Lo, and Lisong Liu
Tuesday, October 17, 12:00pm to 1:30pm 
Boston Athenæum | 10 ½ Beacon St, Boston, MA 
This panel, led by Tunney Lee with Shauna Lo and Lisong Liu, will cover the changing nature of Chinese immigration to Boston from the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 (CEA) through its repeal in 1943 to today.
Although the main driver for the CEA was West Coast conflicts between European settlers—recently arrived via transcontinental railroad—and Chinese immigrants, Boston and Massachusetts played key roles in the passage and enforcement of the law. Panelists will address Massachusetts political reactions to the CEA, Chinatown raids, East Boston’s immigration station, and more, continuing the conversation with the growth of the Chinese community in Boston and beyond following WWII.
This panel considers nationals laws through a local political and cultural lens to shed light on an aspect of immigration history that continues to this day.

With so many of our communities within walking distance of (... or a T ride away from) Boston Harbor, the wonderful folks at "Boston Harbor Now" thought it would be a great idea to introduce (or re-introduce) our community to the enjoyment which the Harbor provides, and how we might be able to take advantage of this great resource, right at the doorsteps of many of us.

 Mulan Society: Free Saturday Women Program

Mulan Society

The Mulan Society is a program aimed at strengthening immigrant women's family stability as they face challenging life transitions. The program takes place for 3 hours on Saturdays in a multicultural safe environment where the women become at ease sharing their experiences as they learn from English and computer instructors and workshop speakers. Additionally, these women can visit AACA during normal office hours for individualized support and case management.

The Mulan Society Saturday sessions feature naturalization classes and basic computer classes, as well as guest speakers in workshops on topics identified as highly relevant to immigrant women and their families based on existing research, including but not limited to navigating the Boston Public School system as well as the healthcare system, domestic violence prevention, and career building, an area where immigrant women struggle to support their family's income as language and cultural barriers interfere.

Participating women can learn about AACA's core programs and services including the Employment Center as well as the Multi-Service Center. The Mulan Society is essential for immigrant women so that they can join groups which provide growth opportunities and relief from isolation.

   Quincy Clinic 88 Holmes Street Clinic South Street Clinic  

Greetings from South Cove! 
Dear South Cove Staff, Patients, Supporters and Friends:   
Eugene Welch
Another fiscal year is ending on June 30, 2017; it is amazing that South Cove is in its 45th year of serving the Asian community in Massachusetts.  
In the upcoming months, we will be learning new ways to deliver care in our ACO, adjusting to care with less payment and more quality measures to report on.  One thing I can say is that community health centers will step up to the challenge and give the best care to all people because that is what we are all about! 
Thank you to all who stand and fight with us.

Sincerely,

Malden Clinic Groundbreaking Ceremony
A 5th Clinic to Open in Malden in December 2017

The long-awaited moment finally took place!  On Wednesday, June, 21 2017, South Cove hosted a ceremony to commence the remodeling of its new Malden property. Over 40 guests attended the ceremonious event including Mayor Christenson, City Council President Peg Crowe, representatives from Malden communities and many South Cove friends and supporters.  
"We are very excited to be in Malden" said Eugene Welch, Executive Director of South Cove, in his welcoming remarks.  This has been a long journey but a rewarding one, and it could not have been possible without the support from the Mayor, the City and of course, the residents of Malden.  He is deeply grateful for everyone's contribution that made this day possible.  South Cove decided to come to Malden because of the 3,000+ patients who are from Malden and he cannot be happier that these patients will soon have access to care in their own town. This is also the year that the health center celebrates its 45th anniversary, the opening of a new clinic before the year-end would be the best birthday present!

Nelson Liu, Board President of South Cove, thanked everyone for coming on behalf of the Board and echoed Eugene's sentiments that this project would not have been possible without the support of many.  "I want to recognize Mayor Gary Christenson and City Councillor Peg Crowe for their support and efforts to make it possible and we give you our commitment to work as a community partner to help Malden become a healthier and better community," remarked Nelson.  He also recognized Beacon Architects, Bond Construction, Malden community groups, Eugene Welch, CEO, Eric Tiberi, COO and South Cove Board member Mai Du who is a longtime Malden resident and business owner.  It is the efforts by everyone over the past year that made this day possible.   
Mayor Christenson and City Council President Peg Crowe also spoke and congratulated South Cove on this accomplishment and expressed their delight in having a community health center in Malden to serve all the residents.

Groups took part in the ceremonious "turning the first shovel of dirt."  Eugene Welch, Mayor Christenson, City Council President, Peg Crowe, and Nelson along with other dignitaries posed with shovels to formally mark the commencement of the construction.  Other groups featuring South Cove Board members and BOND construction employees also posed to commemorate this special moment in the health center's history.  
The one-story building, designed by Beacon Architects, will be over 14,000 square feet featuring a glass entrance.  There will be a parking lot with 76 spaces.  BOND Construction, the contractor, is aiming for a December 2017 completion.    

South Cove Annual Corporate Meeting
South Cove's 45th Annual Corporation Meeting took place on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at the 88 Holmes Street Clinic in Quincy.    
Board President Nelson Liu opened the meeting and welcomed all to the 45thedition.  In his remarks, he announced a new location for South Cove in Malden and vowed to continue South Cove's mission and work together to build better and healthier communities in Boston Chinatown, Quincy and now Malden.  It has long been the mission of the health center to provide quality, affordable and linguistically accessible health care at a community level.
Nelson recognized the hard work that Eugene and Eric have done through the last year to make it possible for South Cove to add a new location in Malden.  He also congratulated fellow Board member Mai Du, a resident of Malden, and commended her for fighting for the opportunity to "get SCCHC to this growing community where she recognized long ago that there was a need."
He took a moment to acknowledge and remember a friend and longtime Board member Steven Ng who passed away.  Nelson was grateful for the support and recognition of his service offered by Steve Ng.  Nelson then introduced South Cove's newest Board member Peter Ng, "with much of life, there is a give and take - with his passing, we have also been given the honor to have his brother Peter Ng join the Board to fill the seat.  Peter is well known for his service to community and country, he has been generous of his time and money in support of numerous organizations and causes that are important to community and we couldn't be more proud to have him with us on the Board."
In closing, Nelson stated that it has been an honor to serve on the Board and pleasure as Board President, and thanked everyone for the opportunity to serve again as president.  The Board is thankful to Eugene Welch and Eric Tiberi for their leadership of the staff to have made South Cove the successful organization that it is today - one that is a model for all others to aspire to.   
South Cove ended the FY2017 strongly.  We are looking forward to FY 2018 and the grand opening of our new Malden clinic in December!

Dr. Yeung's work has helped raise awareness of mental health issues among Asian Americans and improved the way mental healthcare is delivered to this population. On behalf of our patients and staff, we thank and congratulate Dr. Yeung for his contributions both as a physician and a renowned researcher.

Dr. Lucy Chie Promoted at Harvard Medical School  
South Cove Ob/Gyn Department Head Recognized for Exemplary Work 
Dr. Lucy Chie 

Dr. Lucy Chie, Ob/Gyn Department Head at South Cove, was recently promoted from Instructor to Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School.  She also serves as the Director of Obstetrics & Gynecology Community Health Consortium at BIDMC, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital; the consortium's goal is to promote collaboration and learning amongst the affiliated community health centers.
Dr. Chie has been with South Cove for over 13 years and has always dedicated herself to practicing medicine at the community level as well as mentoring and training the next generation of women healthcare providers.  As the OB/GYN Head, she has worked tirelessly towards the mission of serving the vulnerable populations of Chinatown and North Quincy by expanding access and overseeing quality initiatives.  
We are so proud and thrilled of this great news, as Eugene Welch expressed, Dr. Chie "put 100% into everything!" and is well deserved of this promotion.  On behalf of SCCHC, please join us in congratulating Dr. Chie on this marvelous achievement!  

Susan Chin, South Cove Long-timer, Retires after 29 Years of Service

There is a Chinese saying: "天下沒有不散的宴席," meaning "n On Friday, May 12, 2017, staff of the 145 South Street clinic joined together to give Susan the best send-off possible.  Susan started South Cove's Early Intervention program in the 1980s and for 29 years was the cornerstone of the program.  It will be hard to imagine EI without her as she is almost synonymous with the program. But as she led, she also mentored, and is leaving EI in very capable hands.

Eugene on behalf of the health center and its staff wished Susan all the best and reiterated that South Cove would always be her extended family and would always welcome a visit by her.  

L-R: Susan Chin, Eugene Welch, April Tang and Madeline Wan
 
Everyone was treated to delicious gourmet Italian food and two large sheet cakes that provided the sweet finishing touch!  But like the Chinese saying, in both the metaphoric and literal sense, the party had to come to an end too; staff said good-bye to Susan and wished her the retirement of her life!    

South Cove Stat Dragons Roaring Down the Charles!
Two Medals Won!


South Cove Stat Dragons' medal winning streak continues!  The team won a bronze medal in Division E and a silver in the healthcare division!  The Festival took place on Sunday, June 11, 2017 along both sides of the Charles River in Cambridge; it was another record-setting year with 75 teams! Apart from participating in the race, South Cove also proudly served as a festival sponsor to help promote the mission and the work of the Boston Dragon Boat Festival - the longest running dragon boat festival in North America and the largest Asian-American cultural event in New England!  


Stat Dragons made their 14th consecutive appearance this year with a team that is comprised of 2/3 returning paddlers and 1/3 new recruits.  This also marks the 6thyear in a row that the Stat Dragons have come away with at least one medal.  For a recreational team that was only put together less than 2 months prior to the tournament and practiced only 6 times on the Charles, the results are pretty respectable!  As much as we enjoy bringing home some hardware, it is the camaraderie and the good company that will be the lasting memory.  


Special thanks to Captain Tom Leung, Drummer Jacquie Kay, and of course, Stat Dragons' steerer-extraordinaire, Harry Lee; the trio has been in their respective position for 5 years and is the leader and an inspiration for the team! Lastly, thank you to all the team members who committed the time and put in the work to make possible another year of successful showing!

South Cove and Asian Healthcare Foundation Award Scholarships
10 Scholarships Awarded to Essay Contest Winners


In celebration of the health center's 40
th Anniversary in 2012 and the lives of many that the health center has touched, an essay contest was announced and scholarships were awarded to 5 winners.  The Asian Healthcare Foundation of Massachusetts, established to support the mission of South Cove, has funded the scholarships ever since its inception in 2012.  The Foundation Board of Directors also voted that same year to have the essay contest be a yearly fixture for the next 10 years through 2021.  


Serving the community since 1972, South Cove has cared for many multi-generational families and played a big part in the well-being of these families.  With the essay contest, we wanted to achieve two goals: 1 to hear from their perspective the impact of South Cove and 2. to give back to the community and the future generation.  


The contest had a total of 10 entries this year.  Once again, the judges felt that every essay had its merit and deserved recognition, therefore, voted to award scholarships to all.     


Entering its 6th year, the contest has awarded a total of 55 scholarships so far.  We hope that through this contest, the health center is making a difference, however small it may be, in the recipients' higher education endeavor.  


Congratulations to Patricia Chan, Devon Choi, Jason Deng, Jimmy Fang, Rina Lam, Christy Leung, Wanjing Li, Jessica Tam, Eric Tsang and Jennifer Zou.

    The history of Chinese students at MIT dates back to 1877. From these beginnings, the Institute became one of the most popular destinations for Chinese overseas students, especially those seeking to contribute to their country’s modernization through engineering, science, and commerce. Between 1854 and 1954, MIT awarded 734 degrees to Chinese students, the third highest number of any American university. This lecture and exhibition will offer insight into local history, immigration trends, and lessons from a previous generation.

Between 1854 and 1954, MIT awarded 734 degrees to Chinese students, the third highest number of any American university. This lecture and exhibition will offer insight into local history, immigration trends, and lessons from a previous generation.
 
To commemorate the 135th anniversary of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and in conjunction with her exhibition China Comes to Tech: 1877-1931, Professor Emma Teng will address the impact of the Exclusion laws, and the xenophobia that they represented, on students from China, using MIT as a case study.

Remembering the Transcontinental Railroad Workers
On May 10, 1869, America's first transcontinental railroad, originally known as the Pacific Railroad, connected the West and the East for the first time. The construction took six years and covered nearly 2,000 miles. Chinese laborers joined the workforce for the Western section, the most arduous phase of the construction. They comprised more than 80% of the workforce of the Central Pacific Railroad Co; however, they were not featured in the commemorative photographs or acknowledged in early histories.

Pedestrian Safety in Chinatown on NBC Boston
Angie and one of our residents, Mary, was recently interviewed by NBC Boston about pedestrian safety in Chinatown. 

Last summer, ACDC youth and other partner organizations worked on a Pedestrian Safety Campaign, that resulted in multiple structural improvements along Kneeland Street. 

ACDC  is collaborating with other Chinatown organizations to apply to Boston's Slow Streets program for Chinatown, and if selected, additional structural improvements will be made to prioritize pedestrian safety. We are hoping to get 500 signatures for a petition to support our application.

Greetings from South Cove! 

Dear South Cove Staff, Patients, Supporters and Friends, 

Eugene Welch

We are going through many changes, but this is not the time to panic! It is the time for us all to work together and be true to our mission.  Remember, our job has not changed in the last 45 years, and that is to take care of the legal, non-English speaking Asian immigrants with respect, compassion, and linguistic strength.   

Remember, working together we are much stronger! 

Let me thank you for all you do.

   
Sincerely,

South Cove is Expanding to Malden! 
A plan in the works to open a 5th clinic 

South Cove Community Health Center has been exploring the possibility of opening a clinic in Malden for some time.  According to the 2010 Census, Malden has the 3rd largest Asian population after Boston and Quincy.  A Malden clinic makes sense not only because of its Asian presence but also because South Cove's many existing patients are from Malden.  The vision of a location in Malden, first and foremost, aims to bring our services to existing patients, many of them elders who would greatly benefit from a clinic that is right in their backyard. 


We are thrilled to announce that after over a year of actively exploring different opportunities, we have finally settled on a building that has the potential to deliver our vision.   On February 23, 2017, South Cove officially purchased a piece of property on 277 Commercial Street, which we hope to begin remodeling into a state-of-the-art clinic as soon as we receive the green light from the Malden Planning Board.  The remodeled one-story clinic will have 13,782 square feet, with 76 parking spaces.  It will provide internal medicine, Ob/Gyn, pediatrics, lab and optometry care, along with a team of social services staff whose primary job function is to help patients obtain federal and/or state health coverage.

We are excited, both for the health center and our patients, at the prospect of delivering culturally competent care to our existing and new patients from the Malden area.  

American Psychiatric Association Honors Dr. Albert Yeung
Dr. Yeung receives the Kun-Po Soo Award
Dr. Albert Yeung
Dr. Albert Yeung, South Cove's Co-Medical Director and the Head of the Behavioral Health Department, has been selected as the recipient of the American Psychiatric Association's Kun-Po Soo Award. The award, established in 1987, recognizes an individual who "has made significant contributions toward understanding the impact and import of Asian cultural heritage in areas relevant to psychiatry."  Additionally,  the award seeks  to "encourage scholarship and research in culture-specific mental health issues and treatment needs of Asian populations."  

Dr. Yeung has accepted the award and will be traveling to San Diego this May to be recognized at APA's Annual Meeting.  He will also be delivering a lecture titled "Culturally Sensitive Collaborative Treatment (CSCT) for Chinese Patients with Depression in Primary Care," based on his work at South Cove.   



In accepting this award, Dr. Yeung expressed his appreciation and gratitude to both Eugene Welch and South Cove. 



To Eugene: 

"I feel honored and I appreciate your strong support over the years, without which these work would not be possible." 



To South Cove:  

"I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to serve at South Cove.  Our patients are our best teachers." 

Congratulatory note from Eugene Welch, ED:
I'd like to express our sincere congratulations for Dr. Albert Yeung receiving another prestigious acknowledgement of his contribution toward the understanding and the impact of the Asian culture as it relates to psychiatry.  Again, to Dr. Albert Yeung, congratulations on a job well done.

Dr. Yeung has dedicated his career to researching, studying and understanding mental health issues facing Asian Americans; he is at the forefront in the treatment of depression among Asian Americans.   We cannot be more proud of Dr. Yeung and we are thrilled that his work at South Cove is being recognized on a national level.  

Dr. Qiyue Hu and Patient Interviewed on Diabetes Screening Among Asian Americans 
Implicit bias may exist in screening Asian Americans for Type 2 diabetes

WGBH, in partnership with PRI (Public Radio International), interviewed Dr. Hu and a patient of his with Type 2 diabetes on the prevalence of diabetes among Asians and its under-diagnosis. 

According to the article, Asians are two times more likely than Caucasians to develop diabetes and yet there is a startling estimate that "more than half of Asian Americans with Type 2 diabetes don't even know they have it."  To find out why that is, Dr. Elizabeth Tung of the University of Chicago conducted a study and concluded that Asians "had 34% lower odds of being screened than whites."  When factors such as educational level, health accessibility, and insurance status could not explain the discrepancy, Dr. Tung was left to ponder if implicit bias played a role. 

Tung suggested that "either patients don't ask for diabetes screening because they think they are not at risk, or physicians don't screen their patients because they think their Asian patients are healthier and at lower risk."

WGBH, working on a story based on the findings of Dr. Tung's study, approached South Cove and sought Dr. Hu's opinion on the subject.  For his part, Dr. Hu feels the health center does a good job in terms of screening.  But he also stressed that regardless of the ethnicity of the clinician or the patient, as long as doctors follow the guidelines - ADA changed its recommendation to screen Asians at a lower body mass index two years ago - it would be hard to miss anything.    

SCCHC Upholds Its High Standards with Renewed Joint Commission Accreditation 

  we were 
  
The 3-day survey covered everything from clinical operations to policies to board governance. The team of two, which consisted of a physician and a nurse/administrator, did their job by conducting a comprehensive examination of the health center's entire operation. They looked at policies & procedures, inspected the physical facilities and observed staff-patient interactions. They quizzed staff on health center protocols, equipment handling as well as specific knowledge related to the job. The surveyors posed tough questions and left no stone unturned. Though the process was thorough and at times draining, we felt that we had been ready and responded well to the surveyors' fine-toothed comb approach.   

At the end of the survey, the collective feeling from all involved was a sense of accomplishment and of course, a sense of relief! The Commission cited us on some items and made recommendations for improvement going forward.  We felt that the result of the survey was positive and were pleased with our overall performance.   Eugene Welch thanked all staff for their effort and a job well done! 
 
The Joint Commission certificate "is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards." Obtaining this accreditation is considered the pinnacle for healthcare organizations; it means that all our systems: clinical, financial and administrative meet the high standards set by the Joint Commission. SCCHC first obtained the golden seal of approval in 2001, the most recent re-accreditation renewed our status to October 2019.  We are proud to will have been a Joint Commission accredited healthcare organization for almost 20 years by 2019 without interruption, this is a remarkable feat and a record that we hope to keep extending.   

Happy Lunar New Year of the Rooster

Cleaning houses thoroughly, shopping for new clothes and sporting a new hairdo are all indications that the lunar new year celebration is near!  In China, as well as other parts of Asia, lunar new year remains the single biggest celebration of the year and the longest, as it is a 15-day celebration.  This year's spring festival, what the Chinese refers to as the new year holidays, kicked off on Saturday, January 28, officially ushering in the year of the Rooster.



2017 is Year 4715 in the lunar calendar and the year of the Fire Rooster.  In addition to the zodiac sign that runs on a 12-year cycle, each year is also represented by an element according to the Chinese Five Elements (metal, water, wood, fire and earth) Theory.


South Cove marked its own new year celebration at the Washington Street clinic on February 2, with a lion dance by the Josiah Quincy School students.  The Quincy School has a lunar new year celebration every year, it has become a tradition for the lion dance troupe to pay a visit to the clinic following the conclusion of the school's celebration.  As always, the lion cubs (since the dance is performed by 5th graders, appropriately the lions are of smaller size) were a big hit with patients and staff alike. They paraded down the hallway and visited every department to symbolically ward off evil spirits and bring good luck to the clinic.  Though it was a brief 15-minute celebration, nonetheless it brought a smile to everybody as well as a cheery and festive atmosphere normally not associated with clinics.  

South Cove also sponsored and participated in the new year celebrations in Boston Chinatown and Quincy, both of which took place on Sunday, February 12, 2017. 
As everyone settles into the Year of the Rooster, South Cove wishes prosperity, happiness and health to all in year 4715!

SCCHC is Turning 45! 
Save the Date: 9/9/2017

South Cove Community Health Center is turning 45! 

In 1972 a group of volunteers in Chinatown planted the seeds to what is today the premier Asian American community health center of Massachusetts! We owe our humble beginning to those who worked tirelessly to ensure adequate healthcare access to new immigrants facing language and cultural barriers. 45 years later, the health center has stayed true to its mission of serving the underserved and providing quality healthcare at low cost. 

We want to thank everyone who contributed to make SCCHC what it is today. A big celebration is planned for Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the JFK Library and Museum. More information will follow as the date draws near, in the meantime, please mark your calendar and save the date!
