This past week, several medical students from Columbia University Medical Center spoke at CHAH about access to medical care, career pathways for medicine, preparing for medical studies, financial aid, and mindset, believing they can go to medical school or other advanced studies if they set their minds to it. The medical students worked in small groups to allow CHAH students to work with the medical equipment they had brought, such as stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs.
CHAH is very grateful to the kind and thoughtful medical students who came today to work with our kids. It meant so much that bilingual, Latino medical students took the time to share their knowledge and their experiences with us in this way. Thank you, CUMC, for organizing this wonderful experience!
