We engage students in leadership through service, education, and advocacy, with a focus on health for all.
Welcome to H-STAT!
We are H-STAT
Health Students Taking Action Together, Inc. (H-STAT)……is an interdisciplinary, nonprofit, member organization run by health professional students in Georgia.
By mobilizing students to take action on health issues confronting Georgia, we foster a civic ethic in future leaders that will benefit our state for years to come.
Students from across the state of Georgia gathered with physicians, nurses, patients and other advocates to advocate for Medicaid Expansion outside of Grady Memorial Hospital. Check out interviews from the day here.
Our 2016 Fall Kick-Off was an absolute success with an awesome turnout and words of inspiration from the incredible, Dr. Maura George on the importance of a commitment to compassion and advocacy in healthcare. Stay tuned to see what exciting events H-STAT has planned next.
