Hispanics and Medicine


Hispanics and Medicine
When LMSA first introduced itself as a group, their fliers promoted: you will most likely encounter a Hispanic patient at some point in your career. Well, not only in your career, but on—your colleagues, your professors— and off campus too.  If you step out of your home in SXM, there […]

A new cultural and medical experience at LMSA’s Spanish Workshop
