New Community Engagement Toolkit--Social Justice Behind and Beyond the Bars: Criminal Justice Health and Academic Medicine

Social Justice 1

We encourage you to use the Social Justice Behind and Beyond the Bars: Criminal Justice Health and Academic Medicine toolkit to learn about the unique needs and inequities faced by the currently and formerly incarcerated and their families, and what Academic Medicine – across its research, education, clinical and diversity and inclusion missions – is and could be doing to improve the health and well-being for this community.

The 2018 Social Justice Behind and Beyond the Bars: Criminal Justice, Health, and Academic Medicine toolkit features resources, discussion questions, and a series of videos which explore how being currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, or having an incarcerated family member affects one’s health and well-being.

Health Equity Research Virtual Site Visit Features South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine

The AAMC has developed a new Health Equity Virtual Site Visit (VSV) to highlight the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine and the school’s approach to rural health care, community-integrated research, and programs to recruit Native American students into medicine. The VSV was established in 2014 to highlight outstanding health equity research portfolios at AAMC member institutions through videos, webinars, presentations, articles, and other resources. The Sanford School of Medicine was honored with the 2017 AAMC Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service. If you are interested in featuring your institution’s health equity work through a VSV, please email healthequityresearch@aamc.org.
