About the BRAVE Study

The Building community, Raising All Voices for health Equity (BRAVE) Study is a study conducted by researchers at UCLA, UCSF, and UC Irvine. The BRAVE Study focuses on understanding the health and well-being of undocumented Asian and Pacific Islander (API) college students and recent graduates in California. The study will utilize an internet-based survey to examine available campus resources for undocumented students, student needs, and perceptions of healthcare access and use. We will begin recruitment in September 2019 among students attending or recently graduated from community colleges, Cal States, and UCs. The overall goal is to make recommendations to better support the needs of undocumented API students.
