S.L.A.M. Coalition

The S.L.A.M. Coalition is a coalition of student-led organizations representing marginalized and URiM populations and advocating for racial, economic, and gender equity at Tulane University School of Medicine. S.L.A.M. is composed of the Student National Medical Association, Latin American Medical Student Association, Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, and Medical Student Pride Alliance. In promoting inclusivity and equality regardless of racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, gender, or sexual identity, S.L.A.M. collectively collaborates with the School of Medicine to develop policies and curriculum changes, which promote inclusionary practices, culturally sensitive medical education, and the development of culturally humble physicians. In 2020, the group sponsored a 6-part webinar series entitled, “Addressing the Racism Epidemic,” with lectures and presentations by members of the Tulane faculty who are subject matter experts in the areas of racial disparities and social determinants of health.
