Learn more about who we are.
San Diego’s homeless and underserved communities have been ridden with preventable diseases, ultimately leading to the increase of disparities among these populations.
Our strategy is to induct undergraduate and graduate students to become Student Educators who believe in the power that knowledge has in promoting self-awareness and improving health-based decision-making. We educate our clients on the consequences that their actions have on their bodies, from a scientific point of view and in a culturally-competent manner.
Our vision is to reduce the burden of inadequate access to primary care, and decrease excessive hospitalization costs by reducing avoidable visits to the ED.
