What will our legacy be?
Social Mission Alliance is a national movement, focused on health equity and training health professionals as agents of more equitable health care. This takes us beyond centuries-old conventions to train providers prepared to build a system that is not only better, but fairer.
Founded by Dr. Fitzhugh Mullan, the Social Mission Alliance is a joint activity of the Mullan Institute and George Washington University. We transform health professions education by mobilizing and amplifying learners, teachers, community leaders, policymakers, and their organizations to advance equity in education, research, service, policy, and practice.
Social Mission is the contribution of a school in its mission, programs, and the performance of its graduates, faculty, and leadership in advancing health equity and addressing the health disparities of the society in which it exists.
SMA has held six National Conferences, introduced a Social Mission award program, expanded SMA communications, and opened a Summer Internship Program.
Our Student Assembly brings together interdisciplinary health profession students passionate about social mission, to promote, network, and organize around health equity.
The Health Workforce Diversity Initiative, Social Mission Metrics Initiative, Health Justice Fellowship, and Voices for Change Fellowship advance meaningful change.
