2014 CADAH President’s letter – Susan H. Yang, DDS

Susan H. Yang


Dear Esteem Colleagues:

It is a great honor to be serving as your president this year. Since our organization was chartered in 1993 we have grown to close to 300 Life-Time members. The purpose of our organization is to promote the education of the medical and dental doctors, students and community health services. We provide a voice for our doctors to express their opinions and establish network among our members. Our medical members are closely affiliated with Harris County Medical Society, Texas Medical Society. Our dental members are active among Greater Houston Dental Society and Texas Dental Association. With the generous support of our local community, dedicated members and related industries, our organization continues to flourish and we are grateful for our achievements.

With hard work of my predecessors- Yvonne Kew and Jay Zhu , we establish our website. We stream lined our member data and with Cynthia Woo’s help, we hired her husband- Andy Chan to serves as our Webmaster and we set up electronic membership payment system. Now, potential members can join our organization with a simple click of finger. My goal for the year is to continue membership growth and increase our website revenue, establish a Help-Wanted section within our website to allow our members to place ads for advertisement for potential associate positions, rental space, and practice sales.

Our monthly CME meeting continues to provide interesting topics to our members along with sampling of fine cuisine at top restaurants throughout the city. For the month of May, our meeting was at Osteria Antica where our members learned about the re-formulation of NSAIDS, which was sponsored by Iroko Pharmaceuticals Inc. For month of June, Michael Yueng-one of our Life-Time member was the speaker on topic of Botox at Charrasco’s. Next up: Personal and Practice Finance at BBVA/Compass Bank- Galleria. Our monthly CME meeting continues to be a draw to members to socialize and network, and it’s possible all due to the hard work and dedication of Lina Ching. She is working double duty as both CME director and President-elect for next year.

This year, we have a very special Key Note Speaker for our Scholarship Gala: Dr. Yuen-Tseh Lee of Academia Sinica of Taiwan. I met with Dr. Lee in Taipei last month and he is excited about our gala. It was a great honor to have a Nobel winner to come to our gala and take part in our celebration. This will be the last year that Dr. Lee travels to Houston. We moved our scholarship gala to March 14, 2015 to accommodate Dr. Lee’s schedule. Therefore, we will have our event in Fung’s Kitchen. The price will be higher due to lack of flexibility of our speaker and facility. I had the pleasure to meeting Dr. Lee in person in Taiwan and hand delivered our invitation and discuss the gala (please see photo) with him. Thanks to Ted Shih for securing Dr. Lee as our keynote speaker.

We have many activities in the planning phase for this upcoming year. Next Up: August Restaurant Month. Location and date will be announced shortly, please be on the lookout for an email announcement. This will be a family outing for our members and sport event in the winter is in the planning phase. Our members may enjoy the additional benefit of CADAH sponsorship. Please be on the lookout in our website in the future.

Once again, thank all of you for your support and making this organization great.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure


Good afternoon,

Susan G. Komen for the Cure kicked off the Komen Tissue Bank (KTB) in 2005 at the SuperBowl in Indianapolis. The goal is to provide researchers with healthy blood and breast tissue to use as comparison to diseased tissue in order to identify and understand changes. The purpose is to eradicate breast cancer.

Plan is already underway to host a KTB day on February 28, 2015 at Baylor College of Medicine at the Texas Medical Center. Komen is interested to recruit minority women in Houston. The GOAL is to recruit 200 minority women which includes Latino, African American & Asians (Chinese, Vietnamese, Burnese, etc)

Please feel free to click the follow links to learn more about the project.

Would appreciate if you can forward this email to the CADA in Houston because this is such a worthy project and glad that Komen wants to include minority in the study.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions because we really would appreciate if the Physicians will spread the words and encourage patients to enroll in this project to find a cure for breast cancer.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Welcome to the CADAH’s website.

I want to congratulate Dr. Yvonne Kew and her team of Board of Directors for the excellent work they had done for the past year. I am honored to be elected as the president of CADAH for the year of 2013 to 2014. A new team of Board of Directors is elected (see below for the name list of board members). We are all very excited and enthusiastic to continue the legacy of CADAH in serving the CADAH community.

To current CADAH members,

We will continue to 1) strengthen our ties through networking, community services and social events; 2) advance our medical/dental knowledge through continued medical education (CME) seminars; 3) enrich clinical experience by sharing our respective expertise with each other; 4) improve patient care by more efficient communication using the new generation of digital media and technology. In the months to come, the schedules of CME events, social gatherings and community services activities will all be announced via email. We plan to update this website with healthcare related presentations, webinars and detailed information of clinical practices of each member. A Chinese version of CADAH website will be created as well. These will provide avenues for knowledge exchange among members, education of public with medical knowledge. Your participation and contribution is sincerely invited and encouraged.

Young doctors are the fresh blood of medical practices. My team will continue the endeavor of supporting young doctors through scholarship and mentoring programs. Your support of the program including participation of future new year fund-raising Galas will be sincerely appreciated.
