Women's Empowerment Brunch

Presented by: UCLA/CDU Chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA)

The Women’s Empowerment Brunch is a celebration of Black women in medicine. The event is an exciting opportunity for women in medicine to identify with like-minded individuals, empower others, and facilitate open and honest conversations that will promote personal and professional growth and health advocacy.

Health Equity Women's Brunch

It’s important to see women from all levels of their educational journey in one room, especially for any pre-med students who may feel less supported on their campus. They get to see women in front of them who have made it and learn from them. Distinguished MDs come and shed light on how to have the confidence to persevere despite any trials and tribulations. Everyone can network and feel encouraged to continue on their journey.
