About Us

Health Students Taking Action Together, Inc. (H-STAT) is a nonprofit, member organization run by health professional students in Georgia.  H-STAT seeks to make being active in the health community a professional habit.  By helping students and health professionals see advocacy as a continuum that links education and service to policy, we can facilitate the development of a new cohort of health leaders.

At H-STAT, we know that health students have significant course loads and little time to spare. We also know that classrooms and labs aren’t the only places to learn.  By joining He-STAT, you’ll get hands-on experience in your community that will help you appreciate and contextualize what you’re learning in school.

H-STAT members are connected to their communities in ways many students aren’t.  We keep you informed about important health issues and provide you with the opportunities and skills to affect the key decisions facing Georgia.
