Go inside the world of beauty and wellness with Danielle Chang, founder of LUCKYRICE and host of Lucky Chow presented by RADII, the popular PBS series that explores how Asian culture is rooted in our everyday lives.

For centuries, Asian civilizations have relied on herbs, food, and fermentation to cultivate health and beauty from the inside out. Inspired by a rich cultural heritage, Asian Americans today are developing food and wellness products that combine the best of East and West. They incorporate a wide variety of traditional remedies — including Korean fermented foods, Indian Ayurvedic principles, Chinese herbs, and Western homeopathy — in innovative ways, creating novel lifestyle products, spaces, and brands that rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul.

Join us for a fascinating discussion featuring Asian Americans who are successfully growing and leading the highly competitive beauty and wellness markets.

The program includes the national premiere of Lucky Chow Season 3, episode 4, "Food as Wellness." Watch a sneak preview below.

Followed by a reception featuring catering by Kimbap Lab, snacks from Pop Pop Shoppe, and a special cocktail by Remy XO and Stanley George of Stanley’s Pharmacy.
