Together We Make The Difference.
"We were humbled to have the opportunity to serve the Korean community. Many of us were previously unaware of the great need in this particular community, ranging from linguistic isolation that poses great challenges to physician-patient communication to misunderstanding about the US health care system that lead to underutilization of services. Through this event, we learned more about the challenges that the community faces as well as different ways by which we might combat them. We are very grateful for this opportunity and hope to have more outreach events such as this one in the near future!"
-- Jane Wang, 2nd year medical student at Johns Hopkins University,
Executive Director of Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association
