We believe transformation happens together, and seek to connect ourselves to and act together in solidarity with other groups in this global health equity community.
Our academic home, UCSF Division of Hospital medicine is on the forefront of hospital medicine and academic medicine. Five DHM faculty members serve as leaders or mentors in the HEAL community.
We share values with and are deeply humbled by the innovative and community led work of our partners COPE in Navajo Nation. We encourage our fellows working in Navajo Nation to partner with COPE and seek to continue to build this partnership in the years to come.
Deeply aligned with the Social Medicine Consortium values, HEAL seeks to contribute to and connect with the educational movement they have ignited. HEAL fellows and staff have had the chance to participate at sessions of Social Medicine Conference annual conference.
Air travel to and from our partner sites by HEAL fellows, alumni, and staff has been generously supported by United Airlines. HEAL's work to train and transform frontline health workers, deliver high-quality health care in resource-denied communities, and strengthen community health leaders requires that our community of leaders can travel, arrive safely, and stay in places that need it the most.
