HMP3 Email Blast! Some with urgent deadlines! 10.9.15
Note from Adele: This is an AMAZING organization of some of the best people I have encountered from colleges around San Diego and wonderful professionals, too.
1. Interested in doctor shadowing, public health, engineering, business, and traveling abroad? Come apply to International Health Collective! Deadline to apply is TOMORROW!
International Health Collective (IHC) is a nonprofit, student-run organization that aims to solve health disparities in Eastern Tijuana and San Diego communities. International Health Collective, or IHC, takes on this issue through a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach. Holding the firm belief that it takes a wide lens and a diverse skill set to examine and alleviate root causes to health issues, IHC members originate from different backgrounds and fields of expertise. Specifically, IHC consists of undergraduate students (medical, engineering, humanities etc.), Medical and Pharmacy graduate students, health professionals, and community members. All who are accepted into IHC will have the opportunity to learn from one another and increase collaborative solutions to our world’s pressing health and community issues. Members will work towards disentangling the complex relationship between structural barriers and health disparity on a global scale.

Note from Adele: HMP3 offers several mentorship programs. Two of them have current openings—PMP needs more mentors to sign up and HPMP needs sub-committee members. Read more:
2. HMP3 Peer Mentor Program (PMP) is in need of mentors! Mentors are preferably third or fourth years who have experience with research as well as leadership positions. Second years who feel experienced enough may also apply to be mentors.
Benefits of becoming a mentor for the Peer Mentor Program include receiving a cord when graduating and confirmation/vouching from our advisor Adele when putting it down on an application. Most importantly, mentors are able impart their wisdom onto underclassmen who want to pursue a career in the medical and health field.
Mentors and mentees are not randomly paired up. There is a process where interests, majors, career goals, and many others are taken into consideration so that mentors and mentees are suited for one another.
