History
In its inaugural year 2017-2018, the group organized the logistics for over 100 participants to enter various running races, bike rides, triathlons, and Spartan obstacle course races. By the end of the year, the group raised over $30,000 for the Zakim Center, a unique department at Dana Farber Cancer Institute that researches how exercise therapy can be incorporated into traditional cancer treatment. Throughout its second and third years (2018-2020), MM has expanded internationally to include 35 chapters on six continents and raise a cumulative total over $80,000 for medical charities and research. MM plans to continue growing exponentially, both nationally and internationally.

In 2020, during our Promise Run event for social justice in the healthcare field, we raised funds for the NAACP. Medicine in Motion is dedicated to promoting social justice in the workplace as both industry and company research shows that social justice contributes to burnout. Our research team is finalizing and preparing to publish a text on the subject, “Racial and Gender Differences in Medical Student Burnout during COVID-19”.
