Let's Get Healthy

Health Education Committee strives to empower students, patients, and community members to take control of their healthcare. Doctors provide excellent treatment, but Health Education works on preventative care and awareness about common health problems. Health Education also connects Los Angeles and Colonia Margarita Moran by relating our health problems and their solutions, keeping in mind differences in resources. In Los Angeles, the committee works on education as well as brainstorming about effective awareness-raising techniques. Then, we implement these educational models at clinic in Colonia Margarita Moran.

What Do We Do?

Students involved in the Health Education committee will learn how to teach a health education seminar and take responses to community health surveys.
