Chinese/English Wellness Guide

The Chinese/English Wellness Guide was developed with extensive participatory research and uses best practices in health communication and health literacy. It was developed with an advisory group of Chinese-American leaders, and with input from over 20 focus groups of Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking Californians. It was distributed to Chinese-speaking communities throughout California.

The guide covers a broad range of user-determined topics, from parenting and health care to employment and nutrition. Readers are linked to websites and toll-free phone numbers where they can find more information or assistance. Chinese-language resources throughout the state are included.

Four bilingual formats were tested with consumers before the final design was selected. The translation was reviewed and adapted by a committee of translators and advisors speaking a variety of Chinese dialects.
