Medical Legal Social event on November 8th
Medical Legal Social event on November 8th
“I attended the medical legal event and I was truly inspired by how many successful Latino professionals came together for a common cause.”  
Fidel Castillo, MD
Partnership with Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois (HLAI):

The Medical Legal Social event on November 8th represented the first time that MOLA and our partner legal organization, the Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois (HLAI) joined forces to celebrate how much we have in common as Latino professionals. With over 70 attendees, the event was a great success to initiate what we plan to be a strong and longstanding partnership. MOLA Physician Dr. Fidel Castillo was our featured speaker answering questions from the legal community such as when it is recommended to seek a second opinion, and HLAI Attorney Moses Suárez discussed the good samaritan law as pertains to doctors.

The event was coordinated by HLAI’s Anna Lozoya and President Juan Morado as well as MOLA’s Wellness and Advancement committee.
