Who are we?
Advocating Intersectional Medicine (AIM) is a student-funded and student-led, pre-health organization centered on intersectional advocacy in healthcare. Our organization consists of undergraduates from various backgrounds passionate about health equity and advocacy. Established Fall 2020, AIM is a new UCLA organization that seeks to promote education and advocacy surrounding social issues in medicine and healthcare. Through the COVID-19 Pandemic, AIM has educated its members on important public health issues, such as vaccinations, racial disparities in medicine, and access to health. Our organization has also provided support and resources to members who are struggling to adapt to online distance learning.
What we do
AIM provides our community with resources, such as infographics, op-eds, social media awareness, and outreach projects. Our goal is to promote advocacy and empower others seeking to enter fields in healthcare to critically examine ways to make medicine more equitable.
To continue our work and expand our reach, we need a little help.
As a new UCLA organization established during the COVID-19 pandemic, online fundraising has been a challenge as we have been operating remotely. We have big plans for expanding our reach, and haven’t even scratched the surface of what is to come. But for that to happen, we need financial support.
As a donor, you will be helping AIM expand and continue fighting for intersectional medicine.
AIM’s work of advocacy and health equity is needed more than ever now with the COVID-19 pandemic. Advocacy alongside underserved communities is essential.
Your donations - big or small - will ultimately be used to provide the various committees in AIM with resources to expand and grow our organization. We will be using your donations to maintain our website and continue making our content, planning panels to help raise awareness about the topics we are passionate about, etc.
Advocating Intersectional Medicine (AIM) aims to propel future healthcare workers to educate themselves in what it means to practice intersectional medicine and advocate alongside others to imagine a future of equitable and accessible medicine. At AIM, we dedicate ourselves to furthering the application of intersectionality. As a community, we recognize health disparities and will work toward healing those affected and restructuring the institutions that instigate inequities in healthcare.
Thank you so much for your support!
