At an early age, Hoang relocated from a rural village in Hue, Vietnam to the Philippines, and then to the U.S. Inspired by the community around him, Hoang pursued a Bachelors of Science in Public Health at the University of Maryland, College Park in hopes that he can uplift other refugee and vulnerable communities. Hoang has been working with the Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program (VNMAP) to alleviate the health disparities that exist in the local Asian American community through outreach programs such as hepatitis B screening, education, and vaccination. His first global health exposure was assisting physicians in providing care to indigenous populations in Costa Rica and Panama where he saw that these short-term solutions were not sustainable. He pursued more long-term approaches and is currently the assistant manager for the PrimCARE project, a pilot project that aims towards creating a better primary care delivery model in the rural Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. Hoang also loves working with students. Recently, he led a medical mission trip to Vietnam for undergraduate students and tutored refugee children in Baltimore hoping that he can inspire them. He aspires to one day become a physician so that he can provide care and work with underserved communities, locally and abroad. He enjoys spending his free time learning about other cultures, baking, and breakdancing.
