In 2016, Vanderbilt was selected by the Association of American Medical Colleges as 1 of 8 institutions in its multi-year project, "Building a Systems Approach to Community Health and Health Equity for Academic Medical Centers." This project accelerated the creation of a medical center-wide Office of Health Equity (OHE). The OHE will expand health equity programs across the VUMC enterprise and support health equity initiatives in the community.
