AAPI Member Feature
Anil Hingorani, MD, is a vascular surgeon practicing in the Borough Park area of South Brooklyn since the mid-1990s. Though originally from a small province in the northwestern part of India, he now enjoys boardwalk bike rides and the sunny beaches of Coney Island with his son. He is passionate about two things: his family and vascular surgery.
Rupa Brosseau credits her Asian-American heritage for playing a significant role in shaping the person she is today. Her parents immigrated to the United States fifty years ago in search of a better future, and she was the first member of her family born in the land of opportunity. Her background gave her a unique perspective on approaching her work daily.
Young Erben, MD
Young M. Erben, MD, FACS, considers herself an early/mid-career vascular surgeon, meaning her accomplishments are still in the making. Her primary purpose and source of motivation is to coach and inspire current medical and pre-med students to pursue their passion in Medicine and the specialty they choose.
Executive Director of the SVS Foundation, Rupa Brosseau celebrates her AAPI heritage this month and every month. Join her in celebrating AAPI Heritage Month by visiting this page each week to see profiles of SVS members (and staff) and by contributing the SVS Foundation.
