UNC LMSA Chapter will host Dr. Pablo Serrano, associate professor of abdominal surgery, for a lecture during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Feliz Mes de la Herencia Hispana! Each year at this time we celebrate the rich history and dynamic contributions of the Latinx community in North Carolina and all the Latinx healthcare professionals and students who make UNC School of Medicine such diverse and inclusive environment for learning and care.
This year we are excited to share that our UNC LMSA Chapter was recently awarded LMSA Southeastern Region “Chapter of the Quarter.” We also would like to invite our UNC community to join us as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and continue the work of outreach to our Latinx community through this upcoming event:

The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) exists to represent, support, educate, and unify US Latino medical students, as well as students who are interested in Latino healthcare. The UNC LMSA chapter was founded in 2013 with the goal of gathering students of all backgrounds at the undergraduate and graduate levels alongside physicians, to work together on improving the health of the Latino community in North Carolina and beyond. This includes supporting students in direct efforts such as community service initiatives and indirect efforts such as drafting policy resolutions to present at national meetings. LMSA encourages student-led efforts that positively impact our community and that develops and refines our personal aptitudes and skills.
