The 2020 Southeast Regional Conference


"Siempre Unidos: Advancing through Activism and Advocacy"



February 29, 2020

Diagnostic Treatment Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital

Miami, FL




The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) is a national student organization which unites medical students with the goal of promoting Latino

health through service, mentorship, and education. We are proud to announce the 11th Annual LMSA Southeast Regional Conference, in collaboration

with the Committee of Interns and Residents, hosted at the Diagnostic Treatment Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The conference will take place

on Saturday, February 29, 2020. The theme of this year’s conference is “Siempre Unidos: Advancing through Activism and Advocacy.”  This

conference will focus on the celebration of Hispanic/Latino culture and values, and how these factors play a role in healthcare, both as physicians and

patients. Currently, Hispanic and Latino Americans amount to 17.1% of the population, making up the largest ethnic minority in the United States. Our

intention is to empower others to keep fighting and pushing forward, while simultaneously lending a hand and serving those that may be struggling.

Additionally, we hope to bring together healthcare professionals who share our interest in celebrating the Hispanic/Latino culture and addressing the

various difficulties and successes of this avidly growing community.
