It is truly an honor to be the 2022 President of KAMA. Over the years, KAMA has leveraged its many engaged members and leaders in advancing the health of the Korean-American community. This year, the theme of the 47th Annual KAMA Scientific Convention will be Community, Equity, and Collaboration
, with a focus on optimizing the health of our unique community. The Convention will take place in person on December 2-4, 2022 in Los Angeles. During the coming year, we plan to reconnect with AMA and our local KAMA chapters. We will also have programs for Women in Medicine, as well as networking events for physicians, trainees, and medical students.
Today’s physicians are the role models for future generations of clinicians, researchers, educators and leaders. It is incumbent upon us to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, set high expectations of ourselves and each other, and to work together to achieve our common goals. In 2022, I invite all of you to become involved in KAMA. I look forward to engaging with all of you during the coming year, and hope you and your families remain well and healthy.
