APAMSA is an organization dedicated to eliminating health care disparities in the APA community. As a nationwide community of APAMSA chapters, we are working together to eliminate Hepatitis B and increase APA bone marrow donors. New projects are in development as well to address the ever-changing needs of our community. Join our national efforts to eliminate health disparities in the APA community.
