Scholarships

As a first-generation Hispanic, doctor visits were a luxury. There was no available insurance for my parents, which strayed them away from medical care. When they did have the opportunity to seek medical attention, no one was able to help them. My inspiration and dedication came from not only my parents but those who are unable to reach medical professionals. I will continue my education to eliminate such barriers and make it more accessible for the underserved communities."

ADVOCACY
LMSA West runs various campaigns annually to create awareness of legislation and policies affecting our community on local and national levels.

Why is policy important for LMSA:

  • Latinos are historically excluded from policy conversations and negotiations. 

  • All policy affects health; environmental policy, health policy, transportation policy, labor policy, civil rights, education policy, etc...
