Korean BBQ Lunch for Shriners Hospital for Children Employees

Chung Cheong Society of Southern California
Thanks SHC-LA Employees with a Korean BBQ Lunch

By Steve Brand, Los Angeles, CA – September 22, 2008 - The Governor of Chungcheong buk-do Province in the Republic of Korea, Woo Taik Chung, recently visited SHC-LA with members of the local Korean Chung Cheong Society of Southern California. The visit was to thank the employees of the hospital for the work that they do with Korean patients by providing them with a traditional Korean BBQ lunch. Approximately 3% of the patients seen at the hospital come from Chungcheong buk-do province. The province, which is located in the center of the Republic of Korean, is an up and coming technological center and is home to Chungnam National University.
In addition, Governor Chung and hospital Administrator Terence Cunningham signed a letter of friendship and cooperation between the people of Chungcheong buk-do and the employees of the hospital. Mr. Cunningham and John Lorant, M.D., Chief of Plastic Surgery at the hospital, were also made honorary citizens of the province. Employees were then treated to a traditional dance performance by Korean dancers, followed by a buffet lunch featuring many types of Korean food.
