2013-2014 APAMSA National Health Advocacy Committee Chairs:
When medical students come together in APAMSA, we have power to advance the health of the Asian & Pacific Islander community. We recognize the need for greater health advocacy actions from our members, and are dedicated to serving our community through health policy reform. Guided by APAMSA’s mission to address the unique health challenges of the A&PI community, we will empower future physicians to engage their peers, elected officials, and society-at-large to implement solutions to health care injustices.
