This year, UCLA medical students are joined by public health students to continue the tradition of bringing together faculty, students, and community members for the annual Healthcare Symposium. Historically, this event has sought to explore new and emerging trends in healthcare, with the hope of catalyzing discussion and engagement by students, faculty, and the broader community. This year’s symposium will focus on innovative solutions in our broken healthcare system. More specifically, we hope the symposium will provide a solution-oriented lens to address mental healthcare access, housing and food insecurity, and diversity in medicine.
