Middle Eastern Medical Student Association

Our role as part of MESA is to help educate medical students and medical professionals of the rich culture of people of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent. Our goal is to provide a support system for individuals of similar cultural backgrounds and to help contribute to an environment of cultural acceptance within our UC Davis community. We also look forward to working with undergrads of all descents to provide assistance through mentorship on their paths to medicine. We welcome anyone interested in MESA issues and culture.

Events we have hosted in the past:

  • Diwali & Eid
  • Fast for a Day
  • Talks and trainings on delivering culturally sensitive care to MESA patients
  • Holi
  • Social potlucks and gatherings
  • Networking events with MESA physicians at UCD and the Sacramento community
