Universities Allied for Essential Medicines
Future Directions for UAEM
Through teach-ins, meetings with faculty, and regular chapter meetings, Penn Med's UAEM chapter has already accomplished much in the way of member recruitment, student and faculty awareness, and building a base of research supporting an argument for UAEM's mission at Penn — but the work is not done yet! Some future events and goals for UAEM include:
- Expand awareness of UAEM's mission from beyond the medical school and into Penn's undergraduate and graduate schools by initiating student-based leadership in those divisions.
- Meeting with members of University faculty and administration to discuss UAEM proposals, their impact at Penn, and their implications for the research and distribution of essential medicines.
- Speaker series open to students who would like to hear about UAEM-related issues.
