Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

Asian Pacific American Officer Committee



The Asian Pacific American Officers Committee was originally established in 1990 and charted in 1993. The APAOC is administered under the Office of Surgeon General (OSG) and is one of four advisory groups of Minority Officers Liaison Council (MOLC). The MOLC provides advice and recommendations on minority issues to the Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS).


The Asian Pacific American Officers Committee is very proud of their history and heritages as part of the U.S Public Health Services. The APAOC has been intricately involved with the formation and establishment of the MOLC in support of all of the minority officers organizations.

The APAOC is a diverse Asian Pacific American group, representing ancestral roots from many countries in Asia and Pacific Islands. We are unique, in that many of the APAOC members were born outside of these United States and immigrated into this country. We have become physicians, pharmacists, dentists, sanitarians, veterinarians, dietitians, therapists, nurses, scientists, engineers, and Health Services professions, all collectively working with the same set of core values to enhance the Commissioned Corps.
