The Multicultural Women’s Health Summit (MWHS) is a free, day-long exciting family wellness event sponsored by UMass Chan Medical School in conjunction with the Central Mass Links. This event brings together families from diverse backgrounds to learn about important health issues that affect their communities. The summit is focused on educating the public about a wide range of health topics, including preventative care, chronic disease management, and mental health. It also provides an opportunity for medical students to learn about the unique needs of underrepresented populations and to gain valuable insights into the cultural competency required to provide effective care.
