The Center for Medical Humanities and Health Justice in Washington, DC aims to shape the future of medical humanities, providing a model for leveraging holistic and analytic approaches to advance health justice. We believe in the power of medical humanities to identify health patterns, enhance healthcare practices, and improve outcomes, ultimately making a positive impact on people's lives. Join us as we redefine how humanities professionals collaborate, publish, and engage, harnessing their potential to influence and bring tangible outcomes to the human condition. Come be a part of our team!

Our vision is informed by our belief in the humanities’ ability to improve people’s lives, to improve healthcare training, and, by extension, health outcomes, to help us better understand the human condition.
