This will be a Q&A style panel, with questions submitted in advance. The questions will surround the topics of professionalism, health disparities, diversity in healthcare, advocacy for DOs, research, community service, and preventative medicine. The questions will be created in advance by SOMA Eboard and Board of Directors. There will also be a GoogleForm sent to SOMA members allowing them to submit questions in advance for Dr. Taffera to answer, should there be extra time at the end.
