    How M2s can help drive changes to community health

    There’s a timeless rule in real estate: Location, location, location. Maybe not surprisingly, public health has an analogue: Community, community, community, which is an emphasis of some medical education. Following are highlights from “Community Health in Action: The A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona,” Chapter 10 of Value-Added Roles for Medical Students, which explores real-world examples of successful student-led community-oriented primary care projects.

    Environmental Health Coalition advances transit solutions to benefit community, climate

    In vibrant and thriving communities, people have the power and resources to realize their vision of health and well-being. However, our opportunity to thrive – as individuals, families, communities and as a country – is in danger because of the increasing instability of our climate. This hurts some of us much more than others. Policies and practices put in place over generations – and choices still being made today – put Black, Indigenous and other People of Color (BIPOC) and low-income communities at greater risk. But within this challenge lies opportunity. Across the country, communities that have historically borne the brunt of environmental harms are harnessing their power to shape…
