CMC Community Stories

Kai Zhang – CMC Staff

With her trilingual ability, clinical training and medical terminology certification, Kai provides critical case management services, clinical support, and advocacy for our clients, especially our Asian clients.

She is the first welcoming face our clients see when they walk into our San Francisco clinic. Kai manages all aspects of the clinic shift – providing support to our volunteer practitioners, scheduling our clients, identifying clients’ social services needs and overseeing our herbal pharmacy. With her Cantonese and Mandarin language skills, she performs outreach to the Asian American community, presenting CMC and our services at various local health fairs and events.

“I never imagined I could work with this amazing organization one day. This clinic is full of compassion. Even though this is not an easy job, helping under-served clients has taught me to appreciate life rather than admire others’ privileges.”
