BMGC is a new nonprofit organization building a community to bridge the growing gap between the public health and medical professions. We are doing this through policy, networking, communication, and collaboration.
Our organization is advocating for crosscutting policy at the local, state, and federal levels. We are creating a space for everyone who works at these intersections to converse and network with one another and develop mentor/mentee relationships. BMGC is developing content to liaise between professions including white papers, newsletters, and podcasts. We are also highlighting and featuring the work of those who are impacting public health and medicine.
Most importantly, BMGC is working to engage with students entering these fields to demonstrate how collaboration will make our shared goals achievable. We are developing university chapters to bring students into the bridging space early. Academic electives are also in development for interns and students who want to learn how to successfully bridge interprofessional gaps before they enter the workforce.
