The California Latino Medical Association strives as a group of concerned Latino physicians to insure the provision of quality and culturally sensitive medical care to the largest under-served population in California.

The CaLMA Board of Directors strives to achieve its mission by:

  1. Improve access to and delivery of quality and culturally responsible healthcare to the Latino communities of California
  2. Increase enrollment of Latino students and participation of Latino faculty in institutions of higher learning in the healthcare professions
  3. Provide guidance and support to resident physicians and medical students
  4. Provide educational programs for health care professionals for the purpose of furthering the corporation’s purposes
  5. Support Latino faculty development and health research
  6. Engage in all activities which may be lawfully carried on by a nonprofit public benefit corporation

Incoming President Maria Puig, M.D., in for CaLMA.

Our Directors have established a tone for our direction: it is my sincere desire to strengthen our association’s infrastructure, firmly establishing us as an organization of members, for members. Running a non-profit requires creative thinking on a daily basis, and ensuring our financial stability is a prime initiative; however, we benefit from a glut of intellectual wealth, amongst the diversity of our members, that we have not tapped. 

When the call comes for participation, please volunteer for a committee or provide content for the newsletter or webpage, intellectual or editorial. If you have ideas that will advance our cause, or information pertinent to our mission, let us know . . . our organization is only as strong as our membership. Finally, in this time of decreasing reimbursements and increasing expenses, I have to make the most difficult call of all – please pay your membership dues, and invite your colleagues to join. Your tax deductible donations help insure the viability of YOUR organization.
