Evans Tran, Physician Assistant at Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center, is preparing for her 5th annual medical mission to Bacoor, Cavite in the Philippines. Sponsored by the Philippine Medical Society of Northern California missionary group, Evans will join a team of medical providers including physicians, dentists, optometrists, nurses and other allied health professionals to provide much needed medical care, surgical services and health educations to residents of Bacoor in the Philippines. The missionary group consists of volunteer professionals from Northern California and local doctors from Manila. Last year, Evans worked with 186 medical and support volunteers to provide medical care to more than 7,000 residents of Boyambong. Hundreds of surgeries were performed and continuing medical education was provided to local physicians.
“I am thrilled to, once again, work alongside so many dedicated physicians and healthcare professionals who donate countless hours to the care of patients with such limited resources,” says Evans. “It is very gratifying to help those in need and I sincerely thank Dr. Pugach for his ongoing support, sponsorship and donation of medical supplies to the medical mission trip each year. I also received donations from Los Alamitos Medical Center, the Los Alamitos Surgery Center, some of our patients and close friends that I cannot be more pleased about.”
Evans is a remarkable woman who each year brings her professional healthcare expertise to help men and women in the Philippines who are in need. I couldn’t be more proud of her commitment and dedication!
