(Livingston, NJ) Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) is launching The Center for Asian Health which includes the Chinese Health Initiative. Su Wang, MD, internist, has joined as the Medical Director of The Center for Asian Health to address the healthcare needs of the growing Chinese population in Northern New Jersey. With Dr. Wang’s expertise, the new Chinese Health Initiative is designed to help bridge that gap between Eastern and Western approaches to medicine by providing culturally sensitive medical care. Dr. Wang will be hosting free Lunch and Learn sessions in her office at 101 Old Short Hills Road, Suite 408, West Orange, NJ on January 10, 16 and 21, 2014 at 12:00 noon. Registration is required by calling 973-322-6888.

Dr. Wang is a national expert on Hepatitis B prevention and was invited to be on a White House panel for World Hepatitis Day in 2011. Dr. Wang received her medical degree from the University of Miami and obtained a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She completed her residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at Georgetown University Hospital.

As part of the Chinese Health Initiative, there will be a comprehensive community outreach service specializing in Hepatitis B early detection and treatment. Communities throughout North Jersey may avail themselves of these outreach initiatives such as health screenings, education programs and physician lectures.

The new primary care practice will also include the services of a Mandarin speaking patient navigator, Chenxia Duan, who will support the Chinese patients by coordinating their health services.

New patients are welcome and most insurance is accepted. The office is located at 101 Old Short Hills Road, Suite 408, West Orange, New Jersey. For more information or to register for the Lunch and Learn sessions, call 973-322-6888 or email
