The Wyoming Health Equity Circle is a new branch started in 2018 by a group of WWAMI students based at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. We are a group of pharmacy, nursing, medical, and pre-professional students dedicated to addressing the health inequities within our state.
Within the last year, we hosted a community-organizing workshop and from that experience built an action team focused around Medicaid expansion. The Medicaid action team has been focused on researching articles specific to Wyoming’s history with Medicaid in order to be versed in
context of the issue in Wyoming. We have begun to target allies among the state legislature and medical organizations throughout Wyoming. We are currently working to recruit professional and undergraduate students and continue to gain traction and grow.
