A message from Our President
Welcome to APAMSA! Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about our initiatives for Asian American medical students and communities.
Since 1995, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association has been advocating for the health of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities in our country. Our current efforts are focused on addressing AANHPI health disparities, community outreach, Hepatitis B/C, bone marrow registry, cancer initiatives, mental health wellness, advocacy, diversity, and cross-cultural and linguistic barriers to care. This year, we are expanding on our initiatives to empower our members to address anti-Asian racism and social isolation during the COVID pandemic, officialize membership, and strengthen our relationships with alumni/physicians, pre-medical students, peer student organizations, and minority Asian groups.
As the largest, official medical student organization focusing on AANHPI health issues, our members are committed to improve their local communities and create nationwide, systemic changes. Historically, our AANHPI issues have been silenced and ignored but with an exponential rise of anti-Asian racism, we are gathering to create a momentous change and amplify the voices of our local communities.
