Equitable Professional Societies Network

An Initiative of the Rise to Health Coalition

About the Equitable Professional Societies Network

The Equitable Professional Societies Network (EPSN) is a collaborative initiative convened by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), in collaboration with HealthBegins and Race Forward and a growing number of other organizations. As part of the Rise to Health Coalition (RTHC), these organizations are on a mission to advance a more equitable health care ecosystem—making health outcomes better for all.

The EPSN mobilizes organizations that represent diverse health care professionals, coordinates learning, and encourages action for collective impact so that all people have the power, circumstances and resources to achieve optimal health.

Get Involved

There are two ways to engage in the EPSN:

  1. Join the learning network: Designed to equip participating organizations with the knowledge, skills, resources and tools needed to operationalize equitable structural changes. Participating organizations will benefit from access to educational sessions led by leaders in the field, networking opportunities and more.
  2. Participate in an action workstream: Participants will have the opportunity to join an action workstream, which provides support for applying learning into coordinated actions consistent with key priority actions for professional societies. Example areas of coordinated action include workforce diversification and the reconsideration of race in clinical algorithms.
