Join the U.S. Small Business Administration to celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month! The event will feature an armchair discussion with Jennifer Kim, SBA Associate Administrator for the Office of Field Operations; Michael Fong, SBA Regional Administrator for Region 10; Chiling Tong, President and CEO of the National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce & Entrepreneurship; and Dr. Guofang Wang, Co-Owner of Everest Medical Group in Upper Darby, PA.
