"The A³C was and remains the spiritual and physical touchstone for numerous Asian American organizations."
To succeed at Stanford and beyond, it is important to optimize both physical and mental health through healthy lifestyle choices and habits. The A³C iLive series (formerly After Dark) aims to dispel misconceptions, increase awareness, and encourage dialogue about health and well-being topics relevant to Asian Americans, as well as to introduce students to resources on campus. Discussions are held confidentially in a small group setting.
In Spring 2007, the Asian American Activities Center launched the Asian American Health at Stanford Initiative to gauge the health and well being of Asian American students. The Asian/Pacific Islander Health and Well-Being Survey was conducted. Based on the data collected, A³C created the After Dark Series to address critical issues identified in the survey, including body image, parental and academic pressures, sexuality, stress and social concerns. In 2012, the program was renamed the iLive series.
The iLive series at the A³C partners with professional resources on campus to provide students with meaningful workshops and opportunities to connect with trained professionals.
