May 18, 2020: A Coalition of Student Organizations Launch Advocacy Tracker Tool of Public Funds for COVID-19 at Key Universities
Today, May 18th, as the 73rd World Health Assembly (WHA) opens virtually due to Covid-19, student health advocacy organizations launched an interactive online advocacy tool that highlights key research universities and institutions receiving taxpayer funds to develop novel diagnostics, therapeutics, and/or vaccines for COVID-19. The tool, by visualizing where public funding is being directed, is designed to be used to hold research universities and institutions accountable to their responsibilities to the public.
The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is committed to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally
competent and socially conscious physicians.
