LMSA Dia de Los Muertos Celebration, November 2016
The UCLA DGSOM/CDU Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) Chapter highlights the commitment of cultivating diverse and passionate physician leaders since the Chicano/Latino Medical Student Association (CMSA) was established in 1984 as a statewide initiative. Many of our board members benefitted from the assistance of LMSA during their respective undergraduate careers, so making sure we provide quality mentorship programming has remained at the forefront of our agenda to create a diverse physician workforce. Our Lennox Health Fairs, Latino Health Lecture Series, Dia de Los Muertos and La Posada events create a sense of community among medical students and healthcare stakeholders. As one of the largest and most established west region chapters, we foster unity among URM medical students, faculty and staff at the local and national levels.
