When asked about what being Charity of the Month means for AMPHS’ corporate development, Sandy Truong, Vice President, Corporate Development, AMPHS said “We are truly honored and excited to be chosen as Charity of the Month.  This means alot to us in terms of providing some strategic direction, but more so what this means for the community.  We look forward to partnering with LEARN for Life Consulting to help ramp up our efforts to ensure that everyone who needs access to free and affordable healthcare can get it.”

Mon Yuck Yu, Chief of Staff, AMPHS weighed in: “We are ecstatic about being chosen as Charity of the Month.  We’re excited about working with LEARN for Life Consulting and tapping into their knowledge and network base of physicians and other supporters that can help provide us with the tools our staff and volunteers need to succeed and be all we can be for our community.”
