Dia De Los Muertos Pre-Health Conference

DDLM is a conference put on by the Bay Area Chican@s/Latin@s in Health
Education's (CHE) and the hosting of the conference is rotated on an annual
basis between UC Berkeley, Stanford, and UC Davis. The goal of the
conference is to provide undergraduate students of color with information
about applying to medical school, public health school, nursing school,
along with an array of other health professions. There will be a series of
interactive workshops, informative panels, and even a medical-student run
gross anatomy lab demonstration.

This year the UC Berkeley chapter of CHE is planning and hosting the DDLM
conference in collaboration with USCF's Latino Medical Student Association
(LMSA). The conference will include its cornerstone gross anatomy lab
demonstrations, admissions workshops for medical, public health and dental
school, financial aid workshop, motivational speakers, and panel discussion
on various health issues such as health disparities, summer programs, and
women in health careers along with new and interesting workshop topics.

Learn more about the workshops available by visiting our official DDLM
website, ddlm16.weebly.com/

Also, there will be a Host/Hostee program available for students who will
be traveling to San Francisco and need a place to stay for the night. If

spaces, so if you are interested please register as soon as possible.

You're Not Imagining It

You're Not Imagining It: Recognizing Institutional Sexism
with Dr. Jackie Reza

Student Interactive Presentation - open to Cal Community, including,
faculty, post-docs, staff, students, alumni and community
*145 Dwinelle Hall*
No RSVP Required!

Women, do you ever feel like professors don't call on you as much? That
your ideas are as valued in your student organizations? That, while you
know you're smart, others don't seem to see you as such? You aren't the
only one! Most of us know how to identify overt sexism (e.g. being told
women belong in the kitchen), but more covert forms of sexism (e.g.
micro-aggressions) can be a lot harder to pinpoint.

Our potential for learning is embedded in the content of our classes AND in
the learning environment we create. Everyday prejudice, bias and
discrimination negates that potential, hinders learning and keeps women
disconnected from each other.

This workshop will explore the ways we can mitigate the impact of
micro-aggressions and create a positive learning environment. We will
explore variety of techniques that include understanding how power and
privilege are often implicated with micro-aggressions, enhancing our
ability to navigate micro-aggressive encounters and developing
relationships with other women that focus on mutual support. These are
tools that will serve you as students at UC Berkeley, and in all your
