Dr. Kenny Banh Launches HEal Mobile Clinic

Dr. Kenny Banh, Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine and Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education, is the brain-child of the UCSF-Fresno Health Education and Learning (HEal) mobile clinic which was launched last fall. Dr. Banh also serves as the San Joaquin Valley PRIME Director, so he saw first-hand the need for both the educational component, and the community health benefit for the Valley's most underserved populations. His passion for education and helping those in our community was the driving force behind the HEal mobile clinic. He believes it will benefit the community threefold by serving as a model to train the next generation of San Joaquin Valley physicians, increasing diversity of the medical profession and creating a positive impact in the Valley for those who do not have access to care. He was featured on the cover of the Fall 2018 issue of the Fresno-Madera Medical Society magazine, Central Valley Physicians. Dr. Bahn received the California Medical Association's (CMA) Compassionate Service Award for 2018 at the 147th annual CMA House of Delegates on October 14 in Sacramento. This prestigious award honors a physician member that best illustrates the association's commitment to community and charity care.
