I am proud to announce that I will be a Speaker and a Panelist at the 2015 National Conference of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. This year's conference theme is "Intersections In Healthcare." The twitter hashtag for this year's meeting is the following: #UCIapamsa2015
Thanks to my friend and colleague Dr. Jay Lee who is the Keynote Speaker for this year's #UCIapamsa2015 conference. He forwarded my name to the planning committee and they graciously extended an invitation to me.
In addition to my presentation topic of "Social Media and Medicine," the planning committee also asked me to participate in a Primary Care Panel along with Dr. Jay Lee, Dr. Emily Dow, and Dr. Bena Teo. I'm really looking forward to this panel discussion.
Registration just went live last week. Especially for all my medical student colleagues out there, early bird registration ends August 31, 2015. Register for the meeting at this link. Housing and accommodations for an event like this probably also goes very fast. Check out hotel options at this link.
According to their website, APAMSA is a national organization of medical and pre-medical students committed to addressing the unique health challenges of Asian and Pacific Islander American communities. The first National Conference of APAMSA occurred in 1995. The fourth National Conference was at The Ohio State University. Ohio is in Region V and I'm looking forward to meeting students from my region. Also check out APAMSA's Facebook Page. I'll see you at the 2015 APAMSA National Conference!
