Thanks to Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, CA, for hosting an evening symposium on March 10, 2014 to highlight the work of Community Partners International (CPI) in improving emergency health care in remote and conflict-affected communities of eastern Myanmar.

Featuring a sneak preview of "The Black Zone," a Grace Baek film about health care and lives in transition in a rapidly changing Myanmar, the evening also included "news from the field" from CPI staff, including co-founder and President Dr. Tom Lee, Trauma Management Program co-founder Dr. Larry Stock and Chief Executive Officer, Sandee Pyne. 

Antelope Valley Hospital has played a vital role in CPI’s efforts to strengthen the country’s most vulnerable families and communities. Over the last 16 years, many physicians, nurses, and other health professionals affiliated with the hospital have contributed their time and financial resources to improve health in Myanmar.
