APAMSA
  • AAMSA is the Kansas Chapter of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), a national organization that brings together Asians and others interested in the health issues that affect Asians so that we may have a strong, collective, public and political voice. APAMSA is interested in both directly promoting the health and well-being of the Asian community as well as in helping all health care workers who work with these communities understand how to care for the Asian patient in a culturally sensitive manner. Finally, APAMSA provides an important forum for Asian Pacific American medical students to meet, exchange information and experiences and develop personally and professionally.
