Mission: to advance the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting medical education and health initiatives.

Encouraging Careers in Medicine

According to the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, there is evidence to suggest that “greater workforce diversity may lead to improved public health, primarily through better interactions between patients and health care professionals.”

The Foundation is committed to supporting a diverse future health care workforce by supporting K-12 pipeline projects that encourage Wisconsin children to consider medicine and related health careers through community grants, our Prescription for a Healthy You program, our Future Superhero of Medicine fund and by participating in the Wisconsin Science Festival. If you would like to volunteer with an existing program or explore new options for engaging youth in your community, contact us at [email protected] to discuss details.

The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation and Wisconsin Medical Society created the Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee to positively influence WisMed's and the Foundation's advocacy and programming in recognition that our diversity makes us stronger.
