CConference of Cultures: Caring for the Diversity of Los Angeles
        A Sea

      August 16, 2009

      As medical and public health students located in one of the most richly diverse regions in the
      United States, we recognize an urgent need to raise awareness of minority health issues and to
      pursue solutions within our classrooms, hospitals, and communities. On behalf of the Asian
      Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), Latino Medical Student Association
      (LMSA), Medical Gay and Lesbian Organization (MedGLO), and Student National Medical
      Association (SNMA) chapters at USC, UCLA, and Charles R. Drew University, we would like to
      seek your support for our 7th annual USC/UCLA/CDU Minority Health Conference:

                                                  “A Sea of Cultures:
                                       Caring for the Diversity of Los Angeles”
                                        University of California at Los Angeles
                                                  November 21, 2009

      The Minority Health Conference aims to explore unique challenges to minority health and to
      discuss strategies for advocacy and change. Our chapters rely on the generosity of
      organizations and companies such as yours to help sponsor our cause. We recognize your
      commitment to community development and believe that our conference will be a wonderful
      opportunity for your organization to impact the education of current and future physicians. Last
      year’s conference successfully brought together several hundred students and clinicians to
      focus on these important issues, and we look forward to continuing the tradition this year.

      Please join us in our efforts to promote minority health awareness among current and future
      health practitioners. Enclosed you will find information regarding various sponsorship options.
      We will be contacting you in the coming week to discuss ways in which we can collaborate to
      make the conference a success. For more information, please visit us online at:

      CDU chapters of APAMSA, LMSA, MedGLO, and SNMA, we thank you for your consideration
      and look forward to working with you.
