The Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS) annual 1-day conference on global health for medical students and residents

  • One major activity of the MMS Committee on Global Health is to plan and host the annual 1-day conference on global health for medical students and residents.
  • The conference typically is held on a Saturday in January or February, and previously has been held either at the MMS headquarters in Waltham, MA., or at Mass General Hospital in Boston.
