Yi-an Yang, MS, MA

I'm a health communication specialist and researcher with over a decade of experience advancing health equity, particularly among people with limited English proficiency (LEP). I have provided intercultural health communication services at the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, CDC, and HHS, among others. I focus on evidence-based models to explain why people do what they do in a healthcare setting, and I served as a co-investigator of “Cultural Beliefs that Impact Medication Adherence among Hispanic Patients with Chronic Conditions,” a study at a Federally Qualified Health Center.

I led Amah Health to win 2nd place in the National Health Equity Innovation Challenge, hosted by BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois, and am dedicated to supporting improved outcomes and greater equity in healthcare.
