Dr. Kang’s Path to Ophthalmology
Dr. Kang’s motivation to become an eye doctor stems from his blind father, Young Woo Kang. Young Woo was born in a small South Korean town at a time when modern medicine was not available. As a result, he became blind from a soccer accident at the age of 16.
While Dr. Kang could not restore his father’s vision, he became dedicated to improving or restoring sight for others. He built a vibrant medical practice in Washington DC, yet also felt compelled to help people who were living in less fortunate circumstances as a way of honoring his father.
Dr. Kang and Health In Sight Mission
While researching various mission opportunities, Dr. Kang learned about Health In Sight Mission of Roatan, and felt inspired by the work they were doing to bring vision care to underserved patients. He has since joined their efforts and brings his skill and specialized training to the people on the island. Dr Kang leads regular mission teams to Roatan and also uses his vast experience and relationships to bring awareness and support to this important cause.
