Ho Luong Tran, M.D., M.P.H., President & CEO


Dr. Tran came from a compelling history as a Vietnamese refugee and built an inspiring twenty year government and public health service career. She is a recognized visionary leader and compassionate advocate for the advancement of well-being of ethnic communities.

Dr. Tran received a doctor of medicine degree from Saigon Medical School, completed a Pediatrics residency at St. Luke Presbyterian Medical Center in Chicago, and received a master's degree in Public Health at the University of Illinois.

Dr. Tran chaired the State of Illinois Governor's Advisory Council on Asian Affairs and the City of Chicago Mayor's Council on Immigrant and Refugee Affairs. She has been appointed to many commissions, including the HHS Secretary's National Minority Health Advisory Council. Dr. Tran also served as the Special Assistant on Asian Affairs within the Center for Minority Health of the Illinois Department of Public Health, helping minority populations by providing information and technical assistance, and by developing, maintaining and enhancing health care services.

Dr. Tran was the President & CEO of the Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum, a national advocacy organization whose mission is to enable AANHPIs to attain the highest level of health and well-being. In less than five years, she grew the organization's budget from $2.9 to $6 million, developed health policy initiatives such as creating the Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander Alliance and NCAPIP, and led her policy staff to develop the Blueprint for Achieving Optimal Health and Well-Being of AANHPIs.

This is a critical time. Right now, historic changes are happening that will impact the health of millions. The new health care law will fundamentally change how we purchase health insurance. The federal government and key states are creating new health insurance marketplaces as well as new programs to help communities afford coverage. At the National Council of Asian Pacific Islander Physicians (NCAPIP), we work tirelessly to ensure that our patients and communities will be able to fully benefit from these changes and that our provider members are able to make their voices heard in Washington, DC.
