The objective of the Education & Research Committee is to develop 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 goals we are working on for 2017 are:
- To organize a continuing education venue for our members through a Latino Health Symposium CME event in November of 2017.
- To establish a mentorship program in partnership with other organizations to help aspiring high school, college and students and residents in their pursue of their medical career.
- To identify opportunities to link our members with research activities aiming to have as many Latino MD Principal Investigators as possible and contributing to the other two goals synergistically.
