This committee is dedicated to helping students educate their schools and communities about important public health issues, develop and execute local public health projects, and promote public health careers.

This committee is focused on advocacy and action for global health issues. Members are given opportunities to take action to help alleviate some of the disparities through events such as Veto the ‘Squito, Global Health Week of Action, AIDS day, and programs focused on poverty and human rights.
This committee educated members on potential political solutions to challenges in modern medicine. These issues include universal health care, international health aid, and the relationship between pharmaceutical corporations and physicians. Additionally, the Legislative committee empowers members to act on their beliefs through public awareness campaigns, informational sessions, and lobby days at the capital.
This committee strives to help the premedical Truman student plot his or her course to medical school. Our goal is to produce an annual guide to inform students on the classes they should consider taking while at Truman and other things they should know before applying to medical schools. We also aim to provide insightful resources which will help students find the answer to the question, “why medicine?”
