Greetings from UPittMed's LMSA, SNMA, and AMSA!!!
With great excitement, we would like to invite you to a dinner in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month as well as the initiation of UPittMed's newest student organization, the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA). There will be plenty of food (taco bar PLUS Brazilian food!), and music from different countries across Latin America. Afterwards, there will be salsa music for those who wish to hang around and learn some moves (last year this was a HUGE hit!).
We will also have a very special guest speaker, Dr. Diego Chaves-Gnecco, who will speak to us about the contributions of various Latinos to medicine. Dr. Diego is a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician at Children's Hospital, assistant professor at the medical school, the director and founder of Salud Para Niño's, and a very active and beloved member of our Pittsburgh Latino community.
This is DEFINITELY one night you will not want to miss! We hope you can all make it!
Here are the details.
Date: Friday, October 9, 2015
Time: 7-9pm (salsa afterwards)

Also, if you haven't noticed yet, check out the posters all around Scaife for info about notable Latinos in medicine and science from throughout history! Many of them have made huge contributions to our field that are still extremely valuable today.
Thanks everyone! We hope to see you at the dinner! :-D
