ABOUT UCI GMMA
The UCI GMMA student chapter started in 2013 as KAMHC @ UCI student chapter. Dr. David Choi and Dr. Sanghoon Ahn both contributed significantly to making of KAMHC @ UCI student chapter and the other student chapters as well. The purpose of student chapters was to allow networking and mentorship between students and doctors with Christ in the center. We aspire to bring pre-health students in college into realms of Christian doctors who vision the Great Commission together with these students. This is done through opportunities that are provided, such as medical missions and volunteering. Contact Information: Melody Lee ucigmma@gmail.com Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about UCI GMMA and our vision. Please let us know if you have a similar vision, and would like to collaborate or support. John 13:35

November Mission Trip

Missions testimonies:

Diane Hong (3rd year, Anthropology Major) : Even though Mexico is so broken and torn apart the people continue to find ways and reasons to keep smiling. They choose to look at the good over the bad, and always find the silver lining in every situation. Every single child and patient that I interacted with made me realize how thankful I need to be for God because even in our brokenness he loves us endlessly and continues to pour onto us. He never stops stirring that fire in our hearts. Irene Jung (1st year, biology): From this mission trip, I could realize how big is our God’s love. Seeing this ordinary family building and running a clinic to serve the entire community! How can this happen without God’s amazing grace and love?! I am so grateful that our God is loving and caring God, and we are all his children 🙂 Runrong Kuang (1st year, biology): Going on mission trip to Sileo allowed me find my faith for the first time. It was such a powerful experience, for I had grown spiritually stronger and stronger as I get to know God more. To top off the whole mission trip, I was able to interact with health professionals, which solidified my goals for the future. *check out the photo gallery below for more pictures!
