Wayne Cottam, DMD, MS, has been appointed as a board member to the Beyond Flexner Alliance.
The Beyond Flexner Alliance movement started with a 2012 conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that brought national attention to medical schools with strong social mission commitment, created a forum for collaboration and shared innovations, and legitimized the important role of medical education in addressing social inequities. The Beyond Flexner Alliance aims to promote social mission in health professions education by networking learners, teachers, community leaders, health policy makers and their organizations to advance equity in education, research, service, policy, and practice.
Dr. Cottam will oversee student community activities and partnerships within Beyond Flexner Alliance.
Congratulations, Dr. Cottam!
