Midwestern University students are investigating ways they can make a positive contribution to our society as part of the next generation of healthcare professionals. Recently, the Midwestern University’s Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA) chapter joined forces with Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Pharmacy’s Executive Council to plan the 4th annual Student Interventions in Health Inequities Conference (SIHI). The conference examines the factors that lead to health disparities among racial, ethnic, geographic, socioeconomic, and other groups with a focus on how to advocate for change.
