Annual Conference Sneak Peak – Tuesday Evening Event at The Conga Room

Conga RoomWith the new conference schedule, the infamous “Monday Evening Event” will now become the “Tuesday Evening Event”!   The event will be held at The Conga Room in LA Live, a short walk from the hotel.   Enjoy a Salsa performance by Rogelio Moreno and his dance team Salsabor Y Cacheas.  Take advantage of Salsa lessons if you are so inclined!  Don’t worry, it won’t be all about Salsa…most of the evening will offer a variety of music genres with something for everyone.  

According to The Conga Room’s website, “The Conga Room is a contemporary space that reflects the vibrant energies of Barcelona and Mexico City. In collaboration with several artists, The Conga Room is designed to pay homage to contemporary Latino culture with special additions including a digital mural and sculptures created by Artist and Film Director, Sergio Arau, and the sensual Papaya Bar designed by internationally acclaimed Cuban American Artist, Jorge Pardo. The Conga Room also boasts a breathtaking VIP area with panoramic views of the Staples Center and Nokia Plaza.”

As always, food and beverages will be offered with this year’s food being provided by Wolfgang Puck Catering.  Enjoy specialty dinner stations inspired by the "Streets of Los Angeles" including Tastes of Olvera Street, Tastes of China Town, and Tastes of Beach City Boardwalks. 

The Tuesday Evening Event is a great way to mingle with colleagues, sponsors, and exhibitors.  Relax, dance, eat, network, and have a great time!

Changes Add Emphasis on Behavioral and Social Sciences

From a news release published by the Association of American Medical Colleges, February 16, 2012

Starting in 2015, when aspiring doctors take the MCAT® examination, they will need more than a solid basis in the natural sciences. Under changes approved today by the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges), they also will need an understanding of the psychology, sociology, and biology that provide the foundation for learning about the human and social components of health.
