Introduction & Theme 

We are pleased to announce our upcoming National Conference, hosted by the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM), March 6-8, 2020 in St. Louis, MO. This year's Conference will focus on the theme, "Unidos por Medicina y Más: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Latinx Health." Through this theme, we hope to expose attendees to not only a variety of healthcare issues facing communities of color across the country, but also a wide range of perspectives in medicine, policy, anthropology, and other disciplines dedicated to solving those issues. We extend immense gratitude to our host institution, WUSM, as well as our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for contributing to the success of this Conference. Lastly, we thank you - our attendees - for being invested in the mission and vision of LMSA. We hope this Conference provides you with an enriching and empowering learning experience, so that, together, we may improve healthcare outcomes for Latina/o/x-identifying patients now and in the future.

 

Purpose and Demographics:

Each year, the LMSA National Conference aims to bring together high school students, undergraduate premedical students, medical students, graduating physicians, residents, practicing physicians, and other health professionals interested in service, mentorship, and education to advocate for the health of our comunidad Latina. Typically, over 300 attendees travel from across the United States to experience workshops and plenary sessions focused on the following topics:

  • Healthcare needs and challenges experienced by Latinx communities
  • Strategies to tackle health disparities as trainees and physicians
  • Opportunities for personal and professional development as physician leaders

  • And more!
