OUR MISSION: WE are Advocates for Supporting Latinos in the Medical Profession
Tampa Bay Latin American Medical Society (TBLAMS) is a philanthropic society of Hispanic physicians that helps the Latino community and secures the future of the next generation of health care providers by funding the USF Latino Scholarship.
