About Linhan

Linh An earned her Ph.D. from the UCLA Anthropology Department. Her dissertation research is on immigrant Chinese women who provide care to a family member diagnosed with a mental illness. Linh has worked with the New York State Psychiatric Institute on research that aims to develop culturally competent treatment models for limited English proficient (LEP) patients. She has served as a teaching assistant for various introductory anthropology courses, and has taught upper-division cultural anthropology courses at UCLA. Currently, Linh is a consultant at the Columbia University Writing Center where she helps clients with their writing projects. She also serves as the Co-Executive Director at the Chinese-American Family Alliance for Mental Health (CAFAMH), a volunteer-run organization for immigrant Chinese caregivers of mental health consumers. Her training as an ethnographer has informed her approach to community-based research projects that address health inequities. In partnership with the NYU Center for the Study of Asian American Health and the National Alliance for Mental Illness- NYC Metro, Linh is adapting an evidence-based educational program for LEP Chinese families in New York City.

Members: update your directory profile

aage-profile-sample
We encourage every member to add information to their directory profile and a link to a personal website for the AAGE website. A guide to doing this can be found here.
As other members do the same, you should be able to browse our directory for other members with similar interests and foster opportunities for networking and collaboration. (We hope to soon have a searchable system of member information for specific interests, but currently you can only ‘search’ for names)
Note: The member directory and teaching resource section is accessible only to AAGE members.
AAGE is also creating a members only teaching resource section. Please send me your syllabi, handouts, lesson plans, PowerPoints, grading rubrics, assignments, and other resources that you have used to to teach classes in aging and the life course. Also, specify how you want to be acknowledged when someone adapts your materials (i.e. “Adapted from Jane Doe”).
Thank you!
Linh An (AAGE membership coordinator)
and Jason Danely (President Elect)
