We’re on a mission to use the power of communication to radically improve health outcomes. Because everyone has a right to their health.
Health equity is in our DNA. "Amah" means "grandma" in Taiwanese. Our team strives to improve the health and well-being of our grandparents, parents, children, friends, neighbors, and those we love - no matter who they are and where they are from.
We're now running a fundraiser to offer FREE health communication training to VOLUNTEER clinicians at CHARITABLE clinics to scale patient-centric care among DIVERSE POPULATIONS. Join us and donate today!

I’m a good communicator already. Will Amah help me?
-We certainly hope so! Amah is not designed for “bad communicators” to learn the basics. These are communication strategies specific to a healthcare setting that are designed to help healthcare teams and patients better see eye to eye, especially across diverse groups.
How does Amah support health equity?
-When a healthcare team member sees patients of a different cultural or linguistic background, it can be even harder to develop the mutual understanding needed to get patients on board with their treatment plans. Using a systematic, research-backed communication procedure and method can help level the playing field for cultural and ethnic minorities to have similar health outcomes as other populations. For example, Amah’s strategies can help healthcare teams effectively explore barriers to treatment adherence that have to do with religious beliefs, cultural eating habits, or community beliefs about medicine. Amah’s programming also supports healthcare teams in becoming aware of social determinants of health.
