NEW YORK—In 1992, Congress passed Public Law 102-450, which designates May as Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month each year. May, chosen because of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrant to the U.S. on May 7, 1843, now represents “a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States,” according to The Library of Congress. There’s no better time to learn about the incredible impact Asian Americans have had on the U.S. in all areas—and particularly in health care.

On social media, many used the hashtag #AAPIinHealthcare to celebrate the work of those of AAPI descent on the medical professions. Here’s a look at some posts that have done exactly that—feel free to get inspired for your own.
