The 2016 APAMSA Region V Midwest Conference was hosted at the University of Michigan. There were over 90 registered attendees from schools all over the midwest region, including Michigan State, Cincinnati, Wayne State, Case Western, and Toledo School of Medicine. Speakers included Dr. Frederick Leong, Dr. Anna Lok, Dr. Daniel Gih, Dr. Hari Conjeevaram, and Dr. Srijan Sen. Our keynote speaker was Frances Kai-Hwa Wang, who spoke about disparities in Asian-American health (you can view her talk below).  There were also panels discussing Asian-American identity while in the field of medicine. Representatives of APAMSA's main sponsor, the U.S. Navy, also held workshops on careers in military medicine.
