Latino Health Symposium at St Vincent De Paul Village

On April 20, 2013, St. Vincent de Paul Village was the host venue for the annual UCSD Family Medicine Latino Health Symposium. Several UCSD FM residents and faculty, including combined residents Dr. Kelley DeLeeuw and Dr. Andrea Gallardo, organized this day-long event to educate the Spanish-speaking Latino community. Offerings included blood pressure screening, a healthy lunch, free pedometers, and educational sessions in Spanish on topics ranging from hypertension and diabetes to mental health to "how to talk with your doctor." We are glad that we were able to offer this event to our community! Pictured at left are the residents who presented at the event: April Arias (FM PGY-3), Andrea Gallardo (Combined PGY-3), Monica Moya (FM PGY-3), Melissa Rossman (FM PGY-2), and Kelley DeLeeuw (Combined PGY-4).


Dr. Andrea Gallardo represents the UCSD combined program at LMSA-West

Dr. Andrea Gallardo, one of our third-year residents, recently represented the UCSD Combined Program at the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) West annual conference, which was held right here at UCSD School of Medicine this year. Andrea (second from right in this picture) participated in a panel featuring residents from several specialties, sharing her experiences as a combined resident with pre-meds and medical students. In addition to mentoring and career planning sessions, the conference also featured seminars on Latino health disparities, a residency fair, and a gala to celebrate the graduating medical student members of LMSA. We are proud that Andrea was there to represent our program!
