Dear Friends & Colleagues:
The Korean American Graduate Medical Association (KAGMA), a 501c3 non profit organization, is one of the largest Korean American physician associations in California. KAGMA members and board members are prominent physicians serving in the Los Angeles and Southern California region.
KAGMA's mission is to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce health disparities of the Asian American and Korean American community in Southern California. As a signature project of our organization, KAGMA’s health conference themed “Improving Health Outcomes in Korean Americans through Education, Collaboration, and Empowerment,” will be an inaugural health conference to bring together organizations and individuals who serve the Korean American community in a partnership to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce health disparities in Korean Americans.
We are at an inflection point, where LA City, LA County & Orange County, and the State of California, are wanting to reach out to the Asian American and Korean American communities to help improve healthcare access and outcomes. This conference will consist of physician leaders and community organizations discussing the medical issues affecting Korean Americans and the intervention and resources available to our community to improve healthcare outcomes. Political leaders will also be attending to help build a coalition of partners to advance these changes and reduce the healthcare disparities in our community.
The conference is open to any healthcare provider and organizations/individuals serving the Korean American community.
We look forward to your attendance on January 16, 2016 Saturday (8am-1pm) at the LA City Club.
