Keywords:Gastric Cancer, East Asian
Gastric cancer has become a severe health disparity amongst East Asian populations residing in the US.

This op-ed and commentary by Dr. Joo Ha Hwang, Chair of the Asian American Stomach Cancer Disparity Task Force, tells the story of the reality of gastric cancer for high-risk populations and illustrates the dire need for national guidelines to advance early gastric cancer detection practices in the US.
