Welcome to the Nathan Smith Society!

Medicine and Justice Scholars Series

A student-led initiative created to bring about awareness and have conversations about racism, gender, sexuality, and discrimination in healthcare and health education. Often, these are hard topics to discuss, but it’s important to learn about these realities in order to create a more equitable healthcare community.

MJS is going to bring in speakers every term to talk about their expertise in studying and combatting inequalities in healthcare and to facilitate productive Q&A within the Dartmouth community.

An NSS column that seeks to expose pre-health students to the intersection of medicine, ethics, and humanism. By looking to relevant opinion pieces in leading medical journals and crafting bite-sized summaries of recent debates in these spheres, it is our hope to spark interest and discussion to foster a deeper understanding of medicine.
