Here at Ong Institute, we have a belief that giving back to our community is a core people principle. One person can deeply touch another. One touch can change a person’s life. One medical practice can make a difference.
We embrace this power of oneness through our dedication and desire to support the community, our community. Here you will see images, read stories and realize the power that every individual can reach out and touch another person. No matter where or how, big or small, oneness with all builds community.
This community outreach makes us all better people. Touching another person affects both, the giver and receiver. 1 to 1.
Ong Institute salutes our community and each individual giving to others.

Virginia Piper Cancer Center’s Annual Ladies Night Out, October 2016
We had so much fun at the Virginia Piper Cancer Center’s annual Ladies Night Out for Women’s Cancer on October 18th, 2016. The focus for their annual event was on breast, cervical and ovarian cancer. Many valuable resources were available to the attendees such as mammography education, complimentary bone density screenings, and an “Ask the Doctor” panel session in which Dr. Ong was one of the featured Drs.
It was a great night to network with breast cancer survivors and provide a platform to educate them on how our practice is helping patients through breast reconstruction and beyond their cancer treatments. Our mission is to guide our patients back to health and wellness.
The Virginia Piper Center organized a fantastic event in which we were very happy to be able to be a part of! We are looking forward to their next event!
