SCOTUS may have pushed forward in the June Medical Services v. Russo case, but
we've got to #BelieveInMore. We can't just fight to protect the status quo. Let's build a

We at AMSA - American Medical Student Association affirm that police violence and racial profiling of minorities and other marginalized communities is an urgent public health issue. But as we continue to challenge and dismantle these systems of oppression, we must remember that racial bias is rampant in medical education and our healthcare system, too - have to keep this in our public discourse, as well.

Future Physicians Call to Address Racial Injustice and Health Inequities - AMSA

Thanks to AMSA - American Medical Student Association pres Ali Bokhari for this Solidarity Statement: https://buff.ly/2AAWSXx

"In this moment, with one public health crisis compounded by another, the fault lines in a broken system once again confirm that we cannot rely on patchwork solutions. As future physicians, we are committed to channeling our frustration by not only envisioning a future that does not build on our existing wounds, but also by taking action to heal those wounds to create a new foundation."

Advocacy, Social Determinants Must Be Part of Physician Training

Should Ohio OK highly restrictive abortion law?

Our National President Dr Isaiah Cochran says "As a doctor, I believe that medicine should be informed by science and evidence, not politics. Politics do not belong in the clinic, the exam room, the operating room or anywhere near where health care decisions are being made."

Thanks for your leadership Isaiah! #AMSApower #AMSAvoices

Why Doctors Are Fighting Their Professional Organization Over Medicare for All

AMSA was formed, in part, out of opposition to the AMA's regressive, restrictive, sometimes racist policies back in the 1960s. We continue to stand for health justice, equity, & a health care system that serves the patient -- not profiteers. #AMSApower #AMSAvoices #JustMedicine #PharmFree #SinglePayerNow

Calls for single-payer are coming from outside the American Medical Association—and show that doctors are not a single class of workers with a unified political view.
