In 2012, Mai attended a Palliative Care Education and Training program for improving end-of-life care, held at Stanford University School of Medicine. His participation turned out to have a big effect on the Vietnamese community in San Jose.
Equal and equitable value of life has never hurt anyone, and affirming Palestinian human rights is unifying. In pursuit of this, our mission embodies its goals through compassion, justice and love.
