Advocating effectively for yourself as a student, for your future patients, and for your communities can seem like an impossible undertaking. There’s so much in the world that needs change, and it can be hard to know where to start. We’re kicking off a The AMSA Activism Update this year led by our 2020 AMSA-KP Education and Advocacy Fellow, Mattie Renn, with the support of our leaders across all of the various AMSA Action Committees and Campaigns. Join us for panels, Q&As, and just enlightening discussion around the topics that AMSA is working on this year—at the intersection of medical education reform, civic engagement, COVID-19, and health justice, equity and access.
We’re hosting prestigious speakers with a wide variety of expertise in order to bring you the information that you need to be an effective advocate and activist. See past sessions below, and sign up for updates to receive notice of upcoming discussions.
The Next Update
Join us for our next discussion, which will be an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and concerns from this pandemic— Med Student Roundtable: Challenges, Resilience, and Opportunity in COVID-19, on 12/16. This is a chance for all of us to come together to reflect on and plan for navigating the medical education landscape during such a complex and difficult year.
