The Medical Education portfolio aims to bring awareness to healthcare students and professionals about the gender biases that exist within the health system. As well, we educate practitioners about the institutional and structural gender inequalities that exist and shape healthcare today. Our hope is to encourage future and current practitioners across all genders to become more aware of the gender biases they hold, and allow them to reflect and improve their medical interactions with their patients. Through educational mediums, storytelling and outreach events, we seek to highlight marginalized and unheard voices within the medical curriculum to advance comprehensive and compassionate care for all.
The Patient Advocacy portfolio strives to empower and support individuals navigating health, wellness, and medical care within an anti-sexist framework. It looks critically at how advocacy in healthcare is affected by systems of gender inequity. It does so through education initiatives, creating space for storytelling, and providing tools to help folx of all genders advocate for themselves and others. The Patient Advocacy portfolio understands that care is holistic, and therefore advocacy must be as well. For this reason, our projects range from panels to social media campaigns to self-care events.
