Students and residents will have the opportunity to meet and learn from leaders in health advocacy across the state and form action plans to address health issues in the patient communities they serve. In the morning, faculty, community leaders, and trainee leaders will hold a series of breakout "Gold Mining" sessions, allowing attendees to learn from exemplars of health advocacy. Dr. Manish Sethi, founder of Healthy Tennessee and Associate Professor in Orthopedic Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center will provide a keynote address. The afternoon will be dedicated to working with other attendees and health advocacy leaders to develop and present action plans for health issues specific to West, Middle, and East Tennessee.
