GIVING BACK




Many members of our group are recognized for their volunteer work with organizations that have developed a Pap screening for native Indian populations in Latin America, established pathology laboratories in third world countries, and participated in medical missionary work in Africa. Others donate their time by serving on committees and boards for the College of American Pathologists, American Pathology Foundation, California Society of Pathologists, Los Angeles Society of Pathologists, the Asian American Physicians Association, and the Vietnamese Community. We are also generous in our financial support for hospital foundations and charity events such as the Los Angeles Run for Women’s Health. These and other patient care-related topics detailed affirm our deep sense of community involvement.

Soldiers’ Angels


Dr. Steve Ohsie is a member of
Soldiers’ Angels, a charitable organization that supports our troops overseas.

These are just a few high-profile community efforts but all of us have a strong belief in giving back to our local communities, often by helping with the health fairs or other outreach events organized by our respective hospitals.

Pathologists Overseas


Pathologists Overseas is a nonprofit organization that has been coordinating the efforts of volunteer pathologists and technologists for over 20 years to improve and provide affordable pathology services to underserved patients worldwide. This is accomplished by aiding and establishing pathology laboratories, providing diagnostic pathology services and training local physicians as pathologists. Projects were completed or are currently active in Kenya, Eritrea, Madagascar, Ghana, Nepal, Bhutan, Peru, El Salvador, and St Lucia. The main challenge is finding enough volunteers to provide uninterrupted service to a project. 

Two APMG pathologists have worked with Pathologists Oversees. Dr. Keith England, emeritus member, was Laboratory Director at Kijabe Medical Center in Kenya.

See, Test, and Treat


One program that we are particularly proud of is See, Test & Treat. Dr. Si Nguyen of APMG helped organize one of the most successful of these events for the underserved Vietnamese community at the Nhan Hoa Clinic in Orange County. You can see more information on
