IN THE NEWS: Dr. Charles Vega discusses the UC Irvine School of Medicine’s PRIME-LC program with the online Voice of Orange County. Vega talks about how the program trains young doctors to better serve underrepresented communities. Eleven of the newly minted doctors who graduated from the school of medicine this spring received special training in Latino health issues.  Soon, a new class of UC Irvine medical students will enter PRIME-LC and train in Latin America and Santa Ana.
