Medical students help address health disparities in state's Hmong population

Aug. 23, 2017 MCW News - Wisconsin has the third-largest population of Hmong Americans in the country (behind California and Minnesota), yet this ethnic group has little representation in healthcare – either as providers or patients. Luckily, the Medical College of Wisconsin's chapter of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) is working hard to ameliorate some of the health disparities that exist for Hmong Americans. Learn more about APAMSA’s efforts in the Summer 2017 issue of MCW Magazine.
