Growing Our Roots Adelante: LMSA National Policy Summit 2021
October 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - October 3, 2021 @ 3:00 pm PDT
The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) is proud to announce the upcoming LMSA National Policy Summit: Growing Our Roots Adelante!
In light of LMSA’s 50th anniversary, the 2021 LMSA National Policy Summit would like to uplift historical Latina/o/x advocacy organizations from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960-1970s. The Policy Summit provides a venue for medical student leaders throughout the United States to share in the practical and scholastic lessons of health policy. The Policy Summit structure centers upon interactive policy workshops detailing the most pressing and current disparities in Latina/o/x health care. With a focus on policy solutions, we seek to educate medical students on the history behind Latina/o/x health disparities, strategies for policy success, and career paths to lead Latina/o/x health initiatives. The summit will also be an opportunity for networking and mentoring within the Latina/o/x medical community with those navigating clinical, legislative, and administrative duties to direct Latino health care delivery.
