UCLA MEDPEP (Médicos, Enfermeros y Dentistas Para El Pueblo) cordially invites all pre-health students, interested parents and community members to attend our
2nd Annual MEDPEP Pre-Health Conference,
"You Decide: Improving the Latino Physician Supply"
Hosted at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
Coral Tree Walk, Parking Lot 3
Saturday, September 8, 2012
 10: 00 AM - 4: 00 PM
Registration and Optional Breakfast: 9:00 AM- 9:45 AM
MEDPEP is committed to supporting low-income Latino and underrepresented minority (URM) students through their community college experience and transition to four-year universities and health professional programs. The goal of the conference is to inform, encourage, and motivate students to improve the Latino physician supply.  While the overall supply of Latino physicians will increase by nearly 30% by 2020, that growth will be dwarfed by the 74% growth in the Latino population over the same time.  Increasing the Latino physician supply is critical for meeting the demand of the growing Latino population in California.
The conference will cover the following topics:
*      Different paths toward professional schools
*      Professional health provider panels
*      Financial Aid resources
*      Updates on the California DREAM Act and Deferred Action Policy affecting undocumented students
*      Parent empowerment workshops
*      Resource fair
*      Networking
