Welcome to the Latino Medical Student Association!
We are a medical student-driven non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare for Latino communities and mentoring future physicians in the Midwest and the rest of the US.
Our Mission: The Latino Medical Student Association exists to unite and empower current and future physicians through service, mentorship, and education to advocate for the improved health of the Hispanic & Latina/o/x community in the United States.
Our Vision: We envision a world in which improved health outcomes for all patients arise as a result of the following:
- Increased representation and support of healthcare professionals from backgrounds underrepresented among the medical workforce;
- Increased awareness of critical issues affecting the health of the Hispanic, Latina/o/x, and other marginalized communities; and
- Increased efforts to reduce disparities in the ways patients of color experience the American healthcare system.
Want Your Chapter to Be Featured?
We want to display your LMSA chapter’s activities and events to both recognize the amazing events going on in the Midwest Region, and to share these ideas with other chapters. Activities will be featured here on the LMSA MW website homepage, as well as on our Activities Page. Share what your chapter has been up to by sending photos with captions and/or event descriptions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to see all our chapters’ amazing work!
