Our Chapters

H-STAT believes that tackling the most pressing health challenges requires a multi-disciplinary approach. We strive to unite students across disciplines to enable diverse conversations and strengthen cross-professional relationships. To this end, we currently have formal chapters at three Atlanta area schools – Emory University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Georgia State University. Across these schools, we have members who are studying medicine, nursing, and public health. 

By the numbers:

  • 160 Emory chapter members
  • 52 GSU chapter members
  • 38 Morehouse chapter members

Members at each chapter are part of the broader H-STAT community and can participate in any of the main H-STAT programs and advocacy events. Additionally, each chapter arranges educational events, service programs, and advocacy efforts that are uniquely of interest to their chapter members. 

As our presence at each of these campuses continues to grow, our advertising and potential member recruitment efforts are stretched thin.  Any funds you provide can help us in these efforts to keep H-STAT a truly interdisciplinary organization couched outside of any individual school.

With members from  the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and School of Nursing, H-STAT at Emory is thriving.  Your funds could help this movement continue to grow.  Currently, H-STAT at Emory is in the process of becoming a University chartered organization, resting its organization outside of any single school and reinforcing its foundational principles of interdisciplinary cooperation.  However, this process takes a considerable amount of legwork.  This process requires H-STAT recruit potential members from the remaining graduate schools at Emory, including the School of Business, School of Theology, and the general School of Graduate Studies. 

The Morehouse School of Medicine chapter has been growing this year. Leadership from their members has been instrumental in the development of our Prison Praxis program. 

Our newest chapter at GSU has hit the ground running! Already within several months of starting, they have expanded our Cut Hypertension program, established an enthusiastic membership, and scheduled a full calendar of educational events.
