West Region conference Potenciar el cambio: Empowering Interconnection in Healthcare to Create Change
The Latino Medical Student Association West Region is recruiting students, pre-medical, undergraduate and recent graduates with interests in health sciences and Latino health to attend our LMSA West regional yearly conference hosted by UC Irvine School of Medicine on March 13-14, 2020. This conference is geared towards undergraduate students for mentorship.
The annual conference inspires students to enter into healthcare professions and provides career development and leadership skills to the current health care, professional students. The theme of this year’s conference is: “Potenciar el cambio: Empowering Interconnection in Healthcare to Create Change”. The theme speaks to the unique role we as future physicians have in advocating for our patients.
Events include a residency fair for medical students and physicians on Friday evening and workshops for pre-health students on Saturday on the healthcare needs of the Latino community, student leadership training, health care policy, and various forms to take action, and a graduating Senior Gala. Please find the conference information and link attached below.
We have limited funding available for students needing assistance traveling who can reach out to us. Additionally, MiMentor graciously sponsors the “Get on the Bus” campaign to transport students to and from the conference from set locations in Northern CA to Irvine free of charge.
Thank you and we hope to see you and your students present at the conference.
