In 2003, five regional Latino medical student organizations incorporated under one unified name as a national non-profit medical student organization called the National Network of Latin American Medical Students, NNLAMS. In 2006, NNLAMS held its first Annual National Conference in partnership with the National Hispanic Medical Association. Since that time, the NNLAMS Executive Board of Directors and its leadership systematically prepared the organization to launch its own independent Annual National Conference. In 2009, the NNLAMS Executive Board of Directors unanimously voted in favor of an independent National Conference for March 4-7, 2010 held at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This was the first year that all five regions were unified under one common name, the Latino Medical Student Association (formerly NNLAMS).
