Mission

The Asian Pacific Medical Student Association (APAMSA) welcomes all allied-health students, faculty, staff and administrators who are interested in learning more about issues that face Asian and Asian-American communities locally and nationally.  We seek to promote the idea of a rich and diverse Asian and Asian-American population among the Temple Health Sciences community.  We sponsor educational workshops, disseminate research and materials on Asian and Asian-American health, hold networking and social events, and participate in service projects geared towards the Asian and Asian-American community.
