Underserved medicine seminar series

I've heard great things about this seminar series in the past.
John

One of the 6 programs of Doctors Without Walls is the underserved medicine seminar series at UCSB. We have a great line up of speakers this year! The class has 35 enrolled students but is held in a large lecture hall so we can accommodate attendance by others and invite faculty and staff to attend when they can.
