The Asian American Health Coalition (AAHC) d.b.a. HOPE Clinic cordially invites you to support the HOPE Clinic’s 15th Anniversary Luncheon celebration to be held on Thursday, December 7, 2017 from 11:30AM to 1:00PM at the Junior League of Houston.
This year, we are proud to recognize Dr. Vivian Ho, Ph.D. as our Community Honoree. Dr. Ho is the James A. Baker III Institute Chair in Health Economics. Her research, funded by prestigious organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the American Cancer Society is nationally recognized for identifying barriers to quality, affordable health care for all Americans. Her work has been instrumental in developing and supporting policies that reduce health care costs, especially for vulnerable populations like HOPE Clinic serves.
This year marks an important milestone for HOPE Clinic because it represents 15 years of serving as a “safety net” health clinic offering health care for medically underserved children and adults in the Houston area. At the event, we will share exciting news of our “Vision for HOPE” Building Campaign and we invite you to be a partner in continuing our heritage of providing “HOPE” for all!
AAHC started HOPE Clinic in 2002 to address a widening health disparity gap faced by the rapidly growing immigrant and refugee populations residing in southwest Houston. In 2012, HOPE Clinic became a federally qualified health center (FQHC) and a community health safety net for the uninsured, underinsured, and limited English proficient multicultural residents of the greater Houston area. HOPE Clinic now operates three locations in southwest Houston offering comprehensive primary, pediatrics, dental, optometry, obstetrics, and gynecological services. Last year, HOPE Clinic facilitated accessible, affordable care with over 15,000 encounters. This summer, HOPE Clinic also helped many impacted by Hurricane Harvey with medical care at minimal or no cost. In 2017, all three sites were designated by the National Committee for Quality Insurance as Level 3 (the highest) Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).
We greatly appreciate your support of HOPE Clinic and those we serve and we look forward to sharing our "Vision of HOPE" with you.
