Check out the most recent GSU chapter newsletter!


Hey GSU H-STAT! Welcome to 2020!

Did you miss our chapter meeting on Monday where we filled you in on 
H-STAT’s goals for the semester, upcoming events, and leadership opportunities? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Our Spring 2020 goals: 

  1. Become an official GSU club. This will help us secure more funding and partner with other incredible student advocate organizations.
  2. Leadership transitions. Our current leaders are graduating, so we want to make sure we hear from you if you’re interested in shaping the future of H-STAT and helping us grow. Email us if you’re interested! Positions include: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Deadline is Feb 17th!
  3. Increase interdisciplinary work. We want to reach out to new departments about the amazing work H-STAT members are doing! Nursing? Education? Sociology? Where ya at?
  4. Continue relationship building. We want to grow our network of local businesses, non-profits, advocacy organizations, and health professionals who align with our work. Have someone in mind? Let us (and them!) know.
