Throughout the month of October, various student groups will host guest lecturers, student and physician panels, and alternative opportunities for the UNE community to learn about factors impacting health. During SDoHM, students and community members will explore conditions in which people live, grow, work, learn, practice religion, and age that impact individual health, while also learning about systems of oppression that perpetuate those conditions and disparities in healthcare. The events will encourage participants to think about how we might affect positive change in our communities and in our future patient populations. Furthermore, throughout SDoHM, students will be provided resources and virtual learning opportunities about the intersections of healthcare and social injustice, environmental racism, and disenfranchisement, underrepresentation, and discrimination in medicine. Lastly, students will be able to participate in fundraisers and drives which will benefit our community and provide essential resources. This project was created in the hopes that the UNE community would engage in discussions that are difficult but necessary. We also hope that through conversations, reflections, learning (and some un-learning), UNE community members can make a commitment to accessible, diverse, inclusive, and equitable health and wellness.
