The Social Medicine Symposium will serve as a platform for participants to learn from and interact with leaders in the domains of social medicine, global health, and social justice, creating a unique opportunity for engaged conversation on deepening the integration of social medicine into health profession education. The goal of the April 30th conference is to facilitate healthcare providers, educators, students, community organizations, and members of the public to learn about the transformational power of a social medicine approach to health professional education and its potential impact on the health of the broader community.

Speakers at the conference will include thought leaders in the field such as Drs. Paul Farmer, Joia Mukherjee, and Paul Pierre of Partners in Health, Minnesota Commissioner of Health Dr. Edward Ehlinger, and Dr. Sande Ojara of SocMed.  To promote global dialogue, global health leaders from Uganda, Rwanda, Lebanon, Haiti, and Zimbabwe  will also share their vision and insights on pursuing health equity.  Dynamic  breakout sessions on topics such as "Social Medicine in the Clinic: Narrative Medicine and the Social History," "Transformative Models of Social Medicine Education," and "Bridging Clinic and Community: Action to Address the Social Determinants of Health" will be offered.
