The 2015 KONA Report (Korean Needs Assessment of the Bay Area) is a collaboration between KCCEB and UC Berkeley’s Health Research for Action (HRA) Center.
In this report, we assessed the health and social needs of the Korean community in the Bay Area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and San Mateo counties, to determine the best strategies and intervention programs to improve the overall health of Korean Americans.
Do you feel alone as a caregiver for family members suffering from dementia?

“I feel like the only person who cares for my father with dementia, but there is no one for me. I wish there was a community to offer me some support.” — Linda, Caregiver Interviewee
We use technology to break down language barriers and support our Chinese caregiver community to find a sense of belonging.
