Moreover, the summit celebrated the vibrant Mexican culture that permeates every aspect of life in Guadalajara. From cultural excursions and culinary experiences to traditional music and dance performances, attendees immersed themselves in the dynamic tapestry of Mexican heritage, fostering cultural exchange and understanding.
Dr. Kashif Ahmad, Dean of the UAG School of Medicine, expressed his enthusiasm for the summit, stating,

"We were thrilled to welcome premed advisors from Puerto Rico to our campus. This summit presented a unique opportunity for us to not only showcase our academic offerings but also to share the warmth and vibrancy of Guadalajara's culture. By fostering these connections, we aimed to empower advisors with the knowledge and experiences they need to guide their students towards a successful medical career."
