The Asian American Commission (AAC) of the Commonwealth of MA would like to thank Dr. Howard Koh, for a truly wonderful Health Care Summit event tonight!!

Dr. Koh spoke eloquently about healthcare issues and disparities in the AAPI population, and kept the “full house” audience completely engaged before, during, and after his terrific talk!

Much gratitude to The Boston Foundation (and Chief of Staff Stephen Chan) for the gracious use of its conference room space, and for the supportive collaboration to make this evening’s “Conversation With Dr. Howard Koh” such a success.

The AAC thanks ALL the Health Care Summit attendees for your interest and engagement in AAPI healthcare issues and disparities, for “packing the house”, and for making this evening such a memorable occasion!

We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming Young Leaders Symposium on Thursday September 24, 2015, at U-Mass Boston.

We also are excited to welcome BACK Dr. Howard Koh as our Unity Dinner co-Keynote speaker, along with his son, Mr. Daniel Arrigg Koh.

Please join us, Thursday October 15, 2015, for the 9th annual Unity Dinner, at U-Mass Boston, for what will undoubtedly be a wonderful celebration!

Thank you for your ongoing support of the AAC!  We are privileged to support the AAPI communities of the Commonwealth of MA!
