DirectorBrad Williams has been on the Board since June 2015. He is a practicing internist at a community clinic in San Francisco and serves as an associate professor in the volunteer clinical faculty of UCSF School of Medicine. For over a decade his life has been intertwined with the Korean community of the Bay Area via studying the language at KCI’s Sejong Institute, caring for Korean patients, being involved as a parent in the Korean language immersion elementary school program attended by his children, and, most immersively for him, marrying into a Korean family. He finds inspiration both in the strong Korean collective spirit, which has kept alive through multiple eras of adversity an unconquerable will for self-determination, and in the many Korean individuals who bravely bucked the authoritarian currents inside this same collective spirit for the causes of reforms and freedoms in society and the arts. 고추는 작아도 맵다!
