San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
About the conference:
Transforming our script in medicine: advancing leadership in policy, research, and community.
Our 30th Anniversary LMSA conference is the culmination of a student-movement that began in the 1960’s to bring healthcare to underserved communities throughout this great nation. Thirty years after the inception, medical students from across the nation continue to work hard to ensure medical education remains accessible especially to those interested in serving medically underserved communities. The annual conference inspires hundreds of Latinos to enter into healthcare professions and provides career development and leadership skills to current healthcare professionals every year.
In addition to discussing major issues prevalent in our communities such as the growing demand for culturally sensitive, quality health care access, the conference will emphasize the need for Latino physicians in positions of leadership in all branches of healthcare. Furthermore, LMSA will continue to honor graduating seniors, as well as distinguished individuals throughout various conference events.

For Hotel Conference/Gala Parking:
* If you are staying overnight – please alert the front desk that you have a car and they will give you a colored parking pass that will allow you in and out the entire time you are here at the hotel. A parking charge of $4.00 will post each night to your sleeping room account.
* If you are coming in for the day – please be sure to bring your parking ticket (pulled in order to enter the gates) with you to the LMSA registration. There will be a validation box that will validate your parking ticket down from standard pricing to the discounted group price of $4.00. You must then go to the California Ballroom Foyer Pay Station or the Main Lobby Pay Station and pay the remaining $4.00 balance. If you pay inside – you will be able to leave the property once and come back without having to pay again that day (ie: for lunch). However, the payment MUST happen inside. If you are here for multiple days, please follow this process each day. You can also pay outside at the gates with a credit card or debit card (with a Visa, Mastercard etc…. logo). However, paying this way will NOT gain you re-entry on the same day without having to pay again.
See you all at the Conference!
