The California Latino Medical Association (CaLMA) was officially incorporated as a professional medical society in October 1998. The mission that Dr. Juan Villagomez, our first President, so valiantly championed for CaLMA was to strive, as an association of concerned physicians, to insure the provision of quality and culturally sensitive medical care to the largest under-served population in California. Dr. Juan Villagomez worked tirelessly on his dream of forming CaLMA – an organization that would serve to bring California Latino physicians and their colleagues together, united in mission. Dr. Villagomez, who succumbed in October 1999 to an untimely illness, created from his dream a new medical association and a challenge to all California physicians to go forward to help realize the CaLMA’s mission. CaLMA is an Active Tax Exempt 501(c)(3) Organization focusing on Humanitarian and Scholarship Assistance. Juan Villagomez MD Memorial Scholarship is one of many focuses awards provided over the years for Pre-Med, Medical, Nursing and Graduate Students seeking a vocation in Healthcare
