• To develop and implement programs to promote, educate and improve the health and well-being of citizens of all ages, to include wellness programs and preventive medicine;
  • To participate and engage in research and evaluation in the areas of healthcare safety and the quality of healthcare in both inpatient and outpatient settings;
  • To design innovative approaches to improving patient advocacy; and
  • To foster a better understanding of health, both physical and behavioral, and of factors relating to its absence or presence within the general population.

There are a number of specific problems we hope to address and make others aware of, including:

  • Sexual abuse of medical residents and physicians
  • Overworking of residents
  • Mental health stigma in medical students, residents, and physicians
  • Lack of empathy and/or accommodations for medical students, residents, and physicians with a physical illness or disability
  • Lack of legal resources for medical residents
