Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

The Tufts Social Justice Literacy and Advocacy Club is collaborating with the Tufts University School of Medicine students for the following:

On Saturday, May 11th, 2019 at Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM), the Boston Student Health Activist Community (BSHAC) is presenting Rethinking Advocacy in Medicine, a conference that will present the diverse ways advocacy manifests in the lives of patients, providers, and communities, and why there is a need for interdisciplinary partnership across the advocacy spectrum from the individual level to system-wide. The goal of this conference is to inspire, equip, and connect a broader audience of students to health advocacy throughout Boston.

The conference will consist of speakers, panelists and interactive breakout sessions that will engage students in exploring the systematic, community, and individual levels of advocacy. By partnering with a diverse selection of community leaders, local healthcare professionals, and policy makers, we hope to expand students’ understanding and participation in advocacy throughout Boston and beyond.

Register for the conference here to learn more about advocacy in all its manifestations and to connect with those working in this space. Registration is free and open to medical, dental, and public health students and others interested in health advocacy. Breakfast and lunch will be provided!  

Where: TUSM MedEd Building (145 Harrison Avenue)

When: May 11th, 8:30 to 5:00pm (Breakfast and Lunch included)
