Established in 2015, the Social Medicine Consortium (SMC) is a collective of committed individuals, universities and organizations fighting for health equity through education, training, service and advocacy, with social medicine at its core. Recognizing that the perspectives of many are systematically excluded from dialogue and decisions, and convinced that we are all more effective when a wide variety of voices are included, we actively seek diverse geographic, professional, racial, and class perspectives in our consortium.
