Diana Kopach

JPA Five Towns Lead Member

My name is Diana Kopach, and I am a proud Bukharian Jew, wife, and mother of four incredible children. I also happen to be a holistic and integrative dentist at Mineola Dental Wellness, where I get to treat truly wonderful individuals. I have had the privilege of being a part of the 2023 JPA cohort and taking part in learning more about our incredibly tumultuous past, pondering our present, and discussing what our future may hold. In light of more recent events, I am truly looking forward to what the 2024 semester has lined up and how we can help shape the future for our children.
