ABOUT NORTH EAST MEDICAL SERVICES

Welcome to North East Medical Services’ (NEMS) fundraising page for the Give In May campaign!

NEMS is one of the largest community health centers in the U.S. targeting the medically underserved Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) population. Our mission is to provide affordable, comprehensive, compassionate, and quality health care services in a linguistically competent and culturally sensitive manner to improve the health and well-being of the community. NEMS was founded in 1968 in response to a nationwide movement to establish community-based health centers. Over the last 50 years, we have grown from a small primary care clinic in Chinatown to a large organization of 23 clinics/sites, 3 enrollment centers, and a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) Center serving over 72,000 patients each year.

AAPI Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the rich cultures, traditions, and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in our society. However, it's also a time to recognize the challenges and disparities that many members of the AAPI community face, especially in healthcare.

The AAPI community has unique healthcare needs, including language barriers, cultural differences, and limited access to affordable healthcare services. NEMS is committed to bridging these gaps and providing high-quality, culturally competent care to all members of the AAPI community, regardless of their ability to pay.

STAFF QUOTES

“I felt proud to be a part of NEMS’ Give in May campaign last year to raise funds to promote wellness in our AAPI community! I was incredibly touched by the donations from my family, friends, and fellow co-workers to support my fundraiser that helped improve existing and create new employee wellness programs at NEMS. Employee wellness has been crucial these past few years as we have all had to adapt to new circumstances brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I am so thankful that NEMS placed it as a focus during last year’s Give In May campaign.” - Zinnia Dong, 2023
