Description
This collection comprises records produced by the Southeast Asian Genetics Program (SEAGEP), including correspondence and manuscripts, grant applications, research data regarding birth defects and genetic blood disorders, literature on Southeast Asian and Cham communities, SEAGEP publications, and video productions by SEAGEP and other health organizations. SEAGEP publications and video productions include multilingual versions. Literature concerning the Cham (a Muslim ethnic group from Vietnam and Cambodia) relates to an article published by Dr. Kenneth Dumars and Chantan S. Chea, "The Cham: A Population Isolate."
Background
In 1984 the Southeast Asian Genetics Program (SEAGEP) was established to identify services for Southeast Asian communities concerning birth defects and developmental disabilities, and conduct community and cross-cultural education. It was a four-year program funded by the Federal Bureau of Maternal and Child Health (MCH), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. SEAGEP existed longer than its original grant cycle due to the continued support of MCH and other organizations. SEAGEP was directed by Kenneth W. Dumars and coordinated and administered by faculty and staff from the Division of Development Disabilities and Clinical Genetics, a University Affiliated Program at University of California, Irvine.
