2016 Press Release

Hosted by the Coalition of Asian-American Independent Practices Association (CAIPA), the largest independent practice association serving New York’s Asian-American communities and one of the most recognized IPAs in the region, this unique cultural event celebrates Asian Heritage month in May with a specific focus on health care.

Hundreds of leaders in the medical community will be in attendance to enjoy a multimedia celebration of the life of Hua Tuo, the inspirational ancient Chinese doctor who was one of the first true health care providers. A concert of traditional Chinese instruments, Korean drums, Western music, and video will connect attendees to Hua Tuo’s wisdom, innovation, and care.

Hua Tuo’s legacy continues in today’s doctor-patient relationship among Asian-Americans, influencing how care is delivered in these communities. The evening is also a tribute to all health care stakeholders, government, hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, health care providers, and family members, that work individually and collaboratively to provide the most comprehensive care to those in need.

亞美醫師協會(亞美醫協)是大紐約區最具組織和影響力的醫師協會,亞美醫協將于2016年5月23日星期一晚在紐約著名的卡內基音樂廳舉辦一場音樂會。五月是亞裔文化月,亞美醫協希望在文化月内帶給主流和社區人士一個嶄新的音樂會。遠溯中華文化之神醫華陀的醫術和服務人民的精神,樹立仁醫仁術德風,奠定了亞裔的醫生和患者的濃厚關係,這種互相信任和仰賴的關係延續至今,是主流社區人士未曾體會和理解的。看診探病不僅是一個需要和交易,它還帶有關心和付託。

這場音樂會内還將有影片源溯華陀的故事,新移民來美的喜悅和面對新環境的彷徨,得到聯邦和州政府醫療服務的仰仗和安心。令得他們可以專心在這新環境内,安頓孩子們就學,找份合適的工作,建立安穩的家園。音樂會其中穿插由國際知名的藝術家們用笛子,二胡,古箏等樂器演出傳統的中國名曲。還有韓裔的鼓擊表演,西方音樂有小提琴,鋼琴演奏,並有中西知名歌唱家共同演出的四重唱。

音樂會最後將鳴謝所有衛生署以及有關政府官員,醫療界的服務單位包括醫院,療養院和所有醫生以及護理人員。感謝他們在醫療方面給與亞裔社區人士的關心和照顧。
