The La Unidad Latina Medical Guild was formed in 2011 with the goal of uniting professional medical members of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. in order to deliver more efficient care, advocate for the Latino community, and to serve as a resource for Latinos at every level of medical training and practice. Founded by Hermanos from across the nation, the Medical Guild has worked to create a support system for Latino physicians, healthcare professionals, and aspiring students.
Still dedicated to the goals of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc., the Medical Guild hosts an annual service mission to Latin America. On April 25th, 2012 we completed our first mission to La República Dominicana. To date our missions have served thousands of patients, and we look forward to providing much needed care to many more.
Our greatest successes have come closer to home. Using our network to address the dearth of and need for Latinos in healthcare professions, we have provided mentorship and shadowing opportunities. Our work stateside is a much-needed first step towards alleviating disparities seen in healthcare and providing culturally competent care, and we are dedicated to further progress.
