The United Asian American Medical Student Association (UAAMSA) at the University of Michigan Medical School recently developed a platform for aspiring physicians to share their personal reflections and thoughts regarding the ongoing fight for social justice.
The narrative-based social media campaign, entirely run by students, is designed to address and organize issues regarding diversity, equity and inclusion within the health care sphere and beyond.
And while the UAAMSA team realizes it takes more than social media to be a true advocate for social change, they hope that a public-facing tool will hold more people, starting with themselves, accountable for their actions.
Kuo adds that the UAAMSA believes that practicing medicine should be synonymous with practicing social justice and health equity.
“That is why we created the TSWS campaign, to listen to the stories of others and work towards true health equity for all.”You can view The Stories We Share campaign on Facebook, @the.stories.we.share on Instagram and @TSWS_umich on Twitter.
