News and Campus Events
Whether you ride public transit, cycle, drive or walk to HMS, you have no doubt faced traffic jams, competed for parking or waited for what feels like forever to cross the street during rush hour in the LMA.
The LMA is home to a vibrant community of staff members, physicians, teachers and patients who travel to and from the area each day, and each of us has a part to play in making sure that members of our community arrive at their destination safely.
