34th Annual LMSA-West Regional Conference

The Latino Medical Student Association-West (LMSA West) is proud to announce the 34th Annual CCM & LMSA West Regional Conference to be held on Friday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 3rd, 2018. The event will be hosted by the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine chapter of LMSA.

The annual conference inspires Latino students to enter into healthcare professions and provides career development and leadership skills to current health care professional students. The theme of this year’s conference is:

“Breaking Borders, Building Bridges: Paving the Future of Medicine”

 In addition to discussing major issues prevalent in our communities such as the growing demand for culturally sensitive, high quality health care access, we will also emphasize our active role in advocacy- ranging from the family medicine doctor to the Latino physician doing research for diverse populations.
