Asian-Pacific American Medical Students Association

 

 

 

 

The Duke chapter of the national Asian-Pacific American Medical Students Association (APAMSA) is a student-run organization dedicated to learning about, promoting awareness of, and improving Asian-American health issues. Since 2005, the Duke APAMSA chapter has been engaged in community outreach including holding service activities such as bone marrow registry drives, health screenings, and foreign-language health education as well as pursuing other avenues of cultural discovery such as providing Chinese-language training to medical students and, perhaps most importantly, sampling the best Asian restaurants in the Triangle!
