We Build Leaders

"I think these days we talk a lot about physician burnout, I would posit that maybe some of those feelings of burnout come from a feeling of problems being larger than yourself, feeling larger than one person can handle and feeling helpless in light of that.  What Health Equity Circle helped me to see was that you don't do a campaign with just one person, its about building collective power, and learning how to do that."

Learn About Leadership Training

The Health Equity Circle is a student led organization that brings students together across programs and universities

We learn about health equity issues on campus and in the community and how to act through community organizing.

By partnering with community and campus groups we build or collective power to make the positive changes they want to see in our community and advance health equity.

How We Work

We don’t organize for health equity FOR people. We organize for health equity WITH people.

Let’s Work Together
