             In order to commemorate this day, this year we finally had the opportunity to visit this park. Jan Xie and Sheila Man of Asian Culture And Education Society USA met Iris Chang’s parent, Shau-Jin Chang & Ying-Ying Chang at the park on November 4th.  Iris Chang’s parent gave a guided tour and described the meaning of several art pieces displayed in the park.

Iris Chiang (1968 - 2004), a San Jose resident, was a writer, investigative journalist,  historian, lecturer and humanitarian. She had a deep reverence for humanity, was concerned about the rights of all humans, and fought tirelessly to bring light to injustice. Iris believed our path to freedom lies in our belief in the power of one person to make a difference.


“Please believe in THE POWER OF ONE. One person can make an enormous difference in the world… one discovery can cure a disease of spawn new technology to benefit or annihilate the human race. You as One individual can change millions of lives. Think big. Do not limit your vision and do not ever compromise your dream or ideals.” By Iris Chiang.

Asian Culture And Education Society USA Youth volunteers help to distribute the park postcards, masks, toys, cookies and candies. Thanks go to our youth volunteers: Angelina Huang, Jessica Wu, Samuel Wu, Paulina and Amber Wang.

On June 18th, the second summer camp of the Asian Cultural and Education Society USA ended successfully. The first summer camp was a discussion of parent-child relationships, leadership training, social skills,  and a comparison of career choices, and the second period was the wishes of the first period students. While making friends and learning Chinese history and culture, every child actively participated in activities. They learned how to write calligraphy, cut window grilles, make dumplings, and make zongzi, but they also learned to speak boldly, showcase their talents, cooperate with each other, and improve their leadership.

On that day, Jan Xie, President of the Asian Culture and Education Society USA, and Zhongping Pan, director, led the youth leadership team to donate $300 raised from selling cookies and Zongzi to teenage mothers in Uganda to help them return to school for education. The president of GENDAP, Beverly Hill, accepted the check on behalf of the cooperative group in Uganda. She was touched and said: Your group of ACAESUSA students are so generous and compassionate.  I was inspired and touched that they would bake cookies to fundraise for the girls in Uganda. Please tell them how grateful I am and how this will brighten the future for these girls.  It will really change their lives.The students who participated in this fundraising activity include Shivalika, Serene, Richard, Jessica, Samuel, Emily, Amy, Andrew, and Jeff. They participated in the activities and in making dumplings and zongzi with love. Coupled with baking cookies, fund-raising was our gift to the teenage girls’ who cannot afford to go to school because of poverty.

ACAESUSFree Virtual Public Health Series: Cancer Risk Factors and Prevention




Chinese Version Video 

 The Asian Culture and Education Society USA invited Dr. Zhiyong Li, M.D., Ph.D. to give the Asian community a 1-hour presentation titled “Cancer Risk Factors and Prevention” for its Virtual Public Health Series. 


First, Dr. Li talked about cancer’s impact on society: over six hundred thousand deaths in the USA in 2020. On a positive note, 80% of cancer risk factors are avoidable, including tobacco use, alcohol use, lifestyle choices, exercise, and diet habits. Among these risk factors, diet habits have the most serious impact, accounting for 35%, while tobacco use accounts for 30%, and familial factors account for only 3%. Therefore, if we practice healthy eating, we could better avoid health concerns, such as cancer.


Furthermore, Dr. Li recommends a few options for the prevention of cancer. First and foremost, due to the serious impact of diet habits, Dr. Li suggests that one should eat a variety of foods and focus on five important points: five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, foods high in fiber and low in fat, using healthy cooking techniques, seeing a registered dietitian for guidance, and being mindful of food choices. Another recommendation involves maintaining a desirable weight, and Dr. Li demonstrated how to calculate BMI. More of the population is overweight rather than underweight due to eating out, as most convenience foods are higher in fat and calories than homemade meals.


Additionally, Dr. Li connected the relationship between smoking and lung cancer, as smoking accounts for 87% of lung cancer cases, and one out of every five smokers develops lung cancer. In the United States, there are about 228,820 new cases and 135,720 deaths due to lung cancer annually. Dr. Li warns that there is no safe form of tobacco product; thus, it is important to promote the cessation of smoking and the avoidance of tobacco products. 


More than 50 people from the Asian community attended this Virtual Public Health Series, and participants asked questions enthusiastically during the Q&A session. The ACAESUSA community deeply appreciates Dr. Li for his lecture on promoting good health and answering all of the questions patiently. We will remember Dr. Zhiyong Li’s recommendations and remind friends to live a healthier life!


“Welcome new members! It is easy to feel powerless in the face of COVID-19, but together we can make a difference! We will continue to help the community in need,” said Jan Xie, the president of Asian Culture and Education Society USA. “Please join and support the ACAESUSA.”
