Our colleague Ms. Joyce Wong is planning to return to Cuba later this year to continue her research on elderly Chinese men living in El Barrio Chino de la Habana en Calle Zanja  (See SMP 2/9/2011).  She is preparing a book on this community in collaboration with Professor Eric Tang, University of Texas.Ms. Wong’s  work grew out of semi-structured interviews done in Havana in 2007 and 2008.

Some of her work was published in the book Community Health Care in Cuba (Lyceum Books, 2010).   Through her interviews Ms. Wong explores the difficulties faced by a group of (now elderly) Chinese immigrants as they sought “to preserve their physical and mental health, maintain their sense of self, and find a place in the context of the Cuban health-care system and Cuban society.”
See you on Saturday.
