AAMC AHEAD Cycle 4: Health Equity Systems Cohort
On February 23rd the AAMC hosted its first live-streamed workshop of a multi-year series of meetings to map participating institutions’ community health-focused activities into coordinated systems, and subsequently evaluate impacts for patients, communities, learners and the institutions themselves.
The workshop included speakers from the VA, NIH, CMS, HRSA, and CDC among other national stakeholders.
Toolkit: Communities, Social Justice and Academic Medical Centers
Recent events in Baltimore and elsewhere have rekindled the ongoing national dialogue about social injustice. Let’s continue the conversation we started at Learn Serve Lead 2015: The AAMC Annual Meeting and develop concrete actions that an individual, an institution, or the AAMC can take to address social determinants and health inequities. We encourage you to use this toolkit to engage your institution and the communities it serves to explore how your clinical, research and education missions can improve community health and close health and health care gaps.
If you have any questions or want to share details about your institution’s experience with the toolkit, please email email@example.com.
Health Equity Topics
ROCChe is a forum for investigators, clinicians, and their partners to collaborate, share, learn and improve upon the design, conduct and implementation of research that aims to close or minimize disparities in health and health care.
Health Equity Systems Approach
The nation’s academic medical centers and their public health, community-based, and other partners are working to achieve health equity by improving population and community health and by making health care safer and more accessible, affordable, and equitable.
