From SCCF New President
Dear SCCF Sponsors and Sacramento Community Members:
As a scientist, educator, clinician and administrator, it is my great honor to have the opportunity of serving the Sacramento Community as the newly elected President of Sacramento Chinese Culture Foundation (SCCF). For the past 30 years, SCCF has been playing a very essential role in promoting peace and prosperity in multi-culture society at the local, regional and national levels. The best example is that we celebrated SCCF 30th Anniversary by offering the historical East and West Health Fair at the Elk Grove Campus of California Northstate University College of Medicine (CNUCOM) on December 4th, 2016. This was a historical inter-professional education and service experience for local medical schools, pharmacy schools, nursing schools, community colleges and high schools. Physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses, herbalists, acupuncturists, massage therapists, social workers, patient advocates, volunteers, students, community leaders and civic leaders. Over 50 local health care organizations participated this historical health fair and CE event. Several world-renown experts of Chinese Medicine from medical schools and hospitals in Beijing, as well as Southern California and Bay Area, also attended this event. Over 400 community residents attended this unprecedented health fair which integrated western medicine with eastern medicine, and offered free flu vaccines, hepatitis screening, diabetes screening, stroke education and screening, vision and dental screening. At this event, SCCF also conducted Wells Fargo Foundation and UC Davis Confucius Institute Scholarship Award Ceremony, promoted Asian culture with phenomenal performance, and fun activities for children. On behalf of the SCCF board members and the Organizing Committee of East-West Health Fair, I want to express my deep appreciation to all the sponsors, institutions, organizations, vendors, clinicians, volunteers, community leaders, public officials, and community members for all your strong support. We also need your continued support and participation to bring this extremely well-received health fair to our community every year. I proudly announce that SCCF will host 2nd Capital Region East and West Health Fair at California Northstate University College of Medicine, in November, 2017. SCCF is looking forward to collaborating with everyone to continue promoting peace and prosperity in our multi-culture community and society. Please join us as an institutional member, individual member or volunteer. Mission impossible is possible with SCCF, because we are together!
