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 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!

Spring Quarter General Meeting #1 | Post-Grad Panel

Our post-grad panel was a success! All of the graduates shared their journey to where they are today. It gave a sense of relief to the undergraduates that sometimes their path won’t always be a straight one, as long as we depend on God, everything should work out.

Two members from the March mission team also shared their testimonies!

Amanda Sekiguchi is a nurse with a LOT of experience. Amanda spoke about her life experiences leading up to how God turned her around to be involved in the medical field. We we’re able to gain a lot of insight into how God worked in her life, and how she emulates Christ in her workplace! Amanda is one of the most welcoming people I have ever met, and you can clearly see it as she and her husband went around the room meeting new students and sparking conversations. THEY AIN’T SHY, and I absolutely love their boldness and charisma in their intentional spirit with people and their professional lives.

Everyone really loves this guy, and we’re extremely excited for him to come all the way from LA in his super busy schedule to come and share his insights of his career and how God carried him and continues to carry him in his life.

Start praying for your spouse to be.” Important life tips from Dr. Choi, our very own love guru :’) Thank you to those of you that came out today!
