News & Events

*Breaking Bread: Faith, Fellowship, Medicine, and Science. We are seeking faculty members to serve as ambassadors at medical or scientific conferences that they attend each year. They will serve as a lead to host a fellowship coffee or lunch event to further the reach of CAPS and facilitate scholarly collaborations. CAPS will reimburse for the cost of the event. Please send an email to knguye18@yahoo.com and we will forward your interest to Ryan  Kwok, MD and Kalon Ho, MD, MSc.
