"The Calling" Memoir Wins Gold in 2022 Global Book Awards
In The Calling, Chris and Gordon Chen share how the family succeeded beyond their wildest expectations through a combination of determination, data, family, and faith. They turned what could have been a family tragedy into an opportunity that will revolutionize healthcare delivery for years to come. The Calling will give you hope. Released on August 16, 2022, The Calling is available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

As a part of their mission to revolutionize America's healthcare system, the Chens wrote the book to shine a light on how an expensive, uncoordinated, and confusing system works for itself at the expense of suffering patients. The Calling tells the story of how ChenMed, a physician-led, mission-driven company, is transforming care of patients from forgotten and underserved communities by taking a proactive and preventive approach to care.

"We're grateful to the Global Book Awards for the recognition of our first memoir, The Calling. We believe our family was called to bring affordable, VIP care to people who need it most, and through our book, we hope to continue to inspire change and transform communities left behind by America's current transaction-driven healthcare system." – Chris and Gordon Chen
