MEET THE FELLOWS:
Dr. Kevin Tangonan D.O.
Dr. Kevin Tangonan D.O. most recently completed his Residency in Family Medicine locally in Boyle Heights: White Memorial Medical Center. Kevin completed his undergraduate studies in Clinical Laboratory Sciences at Loma Linda University after which he attended medical school at Touro University CA. Throughout his training, Kevin has strove to maintain an active role in his community by volunteering as a mentor at various local high schools as well as providing STI testing and safer sex education within the LGBT community. Through his work within the community of east LA, Kevin experienced the lack of general medical knowledge and unnecessary stigma surrounding the diagnosis of HIV firsthand. This deficit was noted not just with his interactions with his patients but extended throughout the medical healthcare community as well. Kevin believes that a physician’s primary responsibility is to provide information to his community and advocate for his patients. By affecting a change in attitude amongst patients and co-workers at a local level, Kevin hopes to impact how HIV care is delivered and received within the community of Los Angeles.
