The community in the school, and the school in the community.

We now know how much social factors influence health: our ZIP code often has a bigger impact than our genetic code in determining quality of life. A two-year immersive experience at a community health center is at the heart of your community-engaged experience. Whether your service-learning goal is helping to reduce language barriers, encouraging preventive care, or addressing another

systemic issue, you’ll collaborate with community care problem solvers in eliminating health disparities. You’ll work within communities across Southern California to learn about the realities of patients’ daily lives. As you listen to and learn from our neighbors, you’ll understand what it takes to be a change agent in the clinical setting and beyond.
