This year’s conference theme is “Healthcare Disparities, Our Job Is Not Done Yet!” The event caters to current and future underrepresented minority medical students, allowing them to socialize with similar students from other institutions, while interacting with Johns Hopkins faculty and renown guest speakers. The regional conference will feature several interactive modules and educational lectures designed to inspire future physicians to tackle the varying healthcare disparities we face in today and tomorrow’s society.
Students will gain hands-on experience from Hopkins physicians, who are leaders in their respective fields, as well as from advisors that will provide information on medical school admissions. The culture of the conference fosters future physicians’ motivation to tackle health care disparities through their future medical practices. This is an opportunity to expand students' exposure to medicine while at the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus, where physicians and medical students are eager to impart knowledge.
