Education & Research

The Education & Research Program develops strategies to support our members’ career development through education and research. We are interested in addressing the health disparities that Latino community experience with a local, regional, national and international reach. The main venues to develop our activities are:

  • MOLA’s annual Latino Health Symposium CME event.
  • Serve as a forum for our members to publish their scholarly and research activities and achievements through our communication platforms and engage our member as MOLA representatives in academic and scientific institutions.
  • Identify opportunities to connect our members with research and scholarly activities aiming to have as many Latino MD Principal Investigators as possible as well as Latino research subjects in clinical research.


With over 200 attendees, 30 academic poster presentations, 5 expert speakers on Latino cancer care disparities, and a brand new mentorship program inauguration with over 60 mentees, we are proud to say that the event was a great success!

The engagement and enthusiasm of the entire crowd was palpable and demonstrates the need and opportunity that this organization is addressing within many aspects of the local Latino community–from pipeline educational needs, academic professional support, and grass-roots activism to make both individual-patient and large-scale community impact.
