Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance (YPPA)

A New Generation of Support

What is Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance (YPPA)?

Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance (YPPA) was established in 2012 to engage members of the South Bay community. This exclusive group is designed to bring together young physicians and successful professionals in the South Bay community to engage in dynamic social gatherings that allow for personal and professional networking while increasing awareness of and support for Torrance Memorial.
