***RSVP not required but appreciated. Please RSVP to our facebook event***

We hope you all had a wonderful summer! To welcome our new members and reconnect current ones, QuEST will be hosting another happy hour event on October 20th from 5:30-10pm. We'll also be extending the invitation to attendees of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) National Conference LGBT Symposium held here in San Diego. Our event won't be at Surfside this time, but nearby in the Martin Johnson House; T-29. You can find the map here. 

The QuEST executive committee is currently working on collecting donations from various sources to put on another networking event and to begin outreach programs. If you are interested in getting involved or would like to offer any input, please feel free to contact us at We are currently working on setting up a quarterly newsletter so you can be better kept up to date about QuEST's efforts. Finally, be sure to check out the blog post about our first ever pride booth here.
