Susan G. Komen for the Cure

komen-logo

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.

http://www.komenindy.org/about-us/news/donating-breast-tissue.html

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.

A message from the 2013 President

 

CADAH President - Jay-Jiguang Zhu

CADAH President – Jay-Jiguang Zhu

 

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.

 

To Non-CADAH members physicians, dentists or physician/dentist-in-training with Chinese heritage,

We invite you to join us as your local academic family.

Our CADAH physicians/dentists are eager to be yours or your family’s first choice of physicians/dentists for any medical/dental needs from primary care to specialty services.. We will certainly provide the best care possible to help you and your family members. Other than our second to none services, most of our member offices or institutions offer the language services including the dialect of your choice to meet your medial needs. CADHA will provide regular health related seminars to local community and healthy life style consultant via newspapers,TV and radio stations. We look forward to meeting you through those events. Please visit this website often as we update the website regularly.

 

Finally, I want to thank each CADAH members, for your passion in helping the sick, promoting healthy life style and wellbeing of the society, for your contribution in advancing medical treatment and improving healthcare delivery, for sharing your knowledge, love and spirit.
