The Society for Participatory Medicine believes that the culture of healthcare is not benefiting everyone equally and needs to change. And healthcare won’t get better until healthcare culture gets better. We want to drive this change by enabling collaboration, education, information sharing, and communication among patients, caregivers, and health care professionals. Join the movement!

This half-day Creative Learning Exchange, in-person and online, will be highly interactive and participatory. Inspiring speakers will set the stage for the “Neighbors-at-Each-Table” facilitated discussion and brainstorming.

These discussions will focus on practicing the Participatory Medicine Manifesto behaviors in culturally and racially diverse communities to enable access and equity in care. Your ideas, insights and solutions that emerge will be curated by SPM to build a toolkit of participatory medicine guidelines. These will be shared with you and through SPM’s social networks, website and blog.

The Manifesto

Our Participatory Medicine Manifesto defines what patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals need to do to change the dynamics and culture of health care. It encompasses the following five key behaviors and values, as shown in the Participatory Medicine Manifesto.

When these behaviors and values are put into practice in culturally and racially diverse communities it will bring personal and community action and change. The Community Health Access and Equity Creative Learning Exchange will address how the practice and promotion of participatory medicine by all stakeholders can help break down some of the unique barriers to care in diverse communities.

Speaker: Dr. Danny Sands, Co-founder and Chief Advocacy Officer of The Society for Participatory Medicine (SPM)
