Awards 

California Southern III Chapter Receives a 2021 John Tooker Evergreen Award

The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, increase member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine and improve management of the chapter. The California Southern III Chapter received a 2021 John Tooker Evergreen Award for their initiative, The DEI Shift podcast.

The DEI Shift podcast

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are more important than ever in the professional and daily activities of health professionals. The DEI Shift podcast grew out of the Medicine in Motion: Advancing Medicine Through Equity symposium SoCal Region 3 hosted in San Diego, CA in November 2019. The Chapter's hope was to extend the important discussions around promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in medicine and to contribute to building a worldwide community of like-minded listeners. The Chapter leveraged strong connections to established and emerging leaders already invested in DEI principles, and utilized a servant-leadership model to assemble a diverse team of students, residents, fellows, and other attending physicians from all over the U.S. The results include reaching listeners on 6 continents, in 27 countries/territories, 700 cities, and over 5250 downloads.
