Asia Pacific American Medical Students Association/Latin Medical Students Association Dinner

The event is a collaborative dinner between APAMSA and LMSA, aimed at bringing the campus community together through a cultural extravaganza. Underrepresented and marginalized groups have very unique immigration histories, traumatic experiences, and therefore subtle community struggles and obstacles. There are commonalities in the holistic growth and equity journeys.

This event is a call for solidarity. When we advocate for our communities, we go beyond our own to understand other cultures, learn from each other’s struggles, and find the strength to unite our collective voice in a call to action. We can increase our awareness of the struggles of individual communities, identify similarities in our backgrounds/heritages, and help diversify our cultural competencies to foster conscious solidarity, empathy, and care for others. We are planning to do a joint presentation to show how we can promote it.
