Health Equity Commission

 

The SGIM Health Equity Commission (HEC), formally the Disparities Task Force, was formed by the SGIM Council at its June 2001 meeting to continue the Society’s focus on Disparities in Health and Health Care following the 2001 Annual Meeting.  

The Health Equity Commission's (HEC) overall purpose is to serve as the chief advocate for SGIM's health equity related interests for education, research, and provision of clinical care as the Society strives to achieve better health for everyone. In this role, we seek to promote, educate, collaborate with the membership of SGIM, to dismantle structural inequities, and optimize the outcomes of each patient-provider encounter, and pursue social justice especially for vulnerable and marginalized populations by engaging with the physician workforce, researchers, policy makers, and educators in efforts to pursue social justice and eliminate inequities in health.
