UAEM’s annual North American conference is an opportunity to inspire, educate, skills-build and mobilize students from a variety of disciplines to become part of something bigger and act now on the access to medicines crisis at their universities.
This year’s conference marks our 10th anniversary as an NGO in the United States!
Join us to celebrate a decade of student-driven activism for equitable access to life-saving medication! There will be attendees from UAEM India, Brazil, Europe, and all across North America.

UAEM strives to help students attend the conference, no matter what their financial situation. Your school may also offer travel assistance, so please check UAEM’s database and guide, or your student resources center on campus to try to secure funding! Getting external funding for your own travel means that more UAEMers will be able to attend!
Fall Conference Video Competition
UAEM would also like to invite all current students and chapters along with UAEM alumni, wherever you are in the world, to send us a 30-90 second video highlighting your experience with UAEM to include in a montage that we will share in person at the Fall Conference as well as with the broader UAEM audience!
The chapter and individual who submit the most creative video will be eligible to receive additional funding to support travel to the Fall conference!
Your name, current or former university, country (where you were a UAEM member), and a message for the broader UAEM community (eg why UAEM matters, what you gained or simply be creative & have fun showcasing your chapter!)
This conference is made possible through the generous support of the Open Society Institute, the Perls Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and donations from UAEM students, alumni, and supporters.
