PHC announces medical student grant recipients
2023By Physicians for a Healthy California Medical Student Grants
Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC) recently announced almost $25,000 in MedStudentsServe awards across the state to support 14 medical student projects to enhance the health and well-being of California’s communities.
Medical student organizations and groups received money to support free clinics, innovative public health outreach to the underserved and pioneering apps to enable better access to community services. Awarded projects included support for a vision screening program for homeless shelter residents, expansion of telemedicine at a rural clinic, medical translation for indigenous populations, support for a student-run clinic for reproductive health services, and more.
The funds are a part of a program administered by PHC, and funded through endowment and restricted fund, which aims to develop the next generation of California’s physician leaders.
