Carol Choi Named District 74 Woman of Distinction

By March 31, 2021Commentary, In the News

UC Irvine’s very own Carol Choi has been named among the 74th Assembly District 2021 Women of Distinction by Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris. The annual recognition occurs each March in honor of Women’s History Month to recognize women “who have shown extraordinary work, mentorship and leadership.”

For those who are privileged to know and work with Carol Choi, this honor comes as no surprise. Carol embodies leadership through service on several committees at UC Irvine, including as a University Trustee. Additionally, Carol serves as Board Chair of the Korean American Alumni Chapter of the Alumni Association whose Founding President, Alexander Kim, now serves as District Director for the 74th District.

At UCI MIND, Carol has been instrumental in our work to engage the Korean American community in research. She facilitated a partnership between UCI MIND and the Somang Society which is committed to serving aging Korean Americans. Under the leadership of Boon Ja Yoo, president of the Somang Society, this partnership has built new bridges between the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and research efforts at UCI MIND.

We join the many voices of the Anteater community to congratulate Carol Choi on this well-deserved honor.
