In 2023, the Supreme Court ruled against affirmative action in college admissions, leading many to raise concerns about the consequences not only for underrepresented medical school applicants, but also for the well-being of patients.
In this Instagram Live event, a panel of experts will explore how to mitigate disparities in access to medical training, cultivate a more diverse medical workforce, and break down barriers to leadership in an effort to promote better health outcomes for all. Join us live!
