The NIH-SACNAS Chapter (Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) would like to invite you to their monthly event. 

Feeling overwhelmed with medical school applications? This panel will give an opportunity to learn more about the application process and diversity directly from MD, DO and MD-PhD admissions officers and incoming students. Our panelists will share their perspectives and advice with students, and attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in breakout rooms with incoming or current MD, DO and MD-PhD students. 

Everyone is welcome!
