Local Community Organizations

Community Organizations
Helping people and involving yourself in your community are at the core of all health professions. Community service organizations provide opportunities for pre-health students to serve specific populations and develop critical qualities that will be further developed as health professional students. Explore our list of local organizations, explore their mission and identify how you can get started helping children, individuals experiencing homelessness, refugees, at-risk youth, the elderly, or helping to educate the public about a common health disease.
