Our Call to Action

Across the Academy, we leverage the power and purpose of our members, friends, and partners to achieve our mission of improving health for all. From preparing the next generation of leaders in health and medicine to addressing national and global crises of climate change and systemic racial inequality, we will achieve A Healthier Future for Everyone.

Why us? Our convening authority and reputation as the most reliable source for credible scientific and policy advice is unlike any other organization. Why now? Because we can not afford to be complacent or hesitant when our future is on the line.

Campaign Priorities

Emerging Leaders in Health & Medicine

The Emerging Leaders in Health and Medicine Program increases the National Academy of Medicine’s engagement with exceptional early- to mid-career professionals working in biomedical science, health care delivery, health policy, and related fields.

Health Policy Fellowships & Leadership Programs

As part of the National Academy of Medicine’s commitment to building leadership capacity across diverse disciplines to shape the future of health and medicine, the Office of Health Policy Fellowships and Leadership Programs administers a portfolio of highly regarded health policy fellowships and leadership programs.

Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge

The Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge aims to build a worldwide movement to increase physical, mental, and social well-being for people as they age. The initiative will have two components: a prize competition to catalyze breakthrough innovations from any field, and an evidence-based report authored by an international commission.

Climate Change & Human Health

Climate change represents one of the most significant threats to human health in the 21st century. The National Academy of Medicine, in collaboration with many units across the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, is developing an initiative to comprehensively assess the health risks of climate change and develop strategies to address both drivers and impacts.

50th Anniversary & Member Participation

The impact of our organization has been remarkable, but none of it would be possible without the dedication of our members, friends, and staff through their service and philanthropic support. Increasing philanthropic support across the Academy is a key focal point of the anniversary, and in response, we launched a giving challenge with six key goals around the anniversary year. Learn more and track the progress of these goals below.
