Students for a National Health Program – event

Policy 101

Are you a pre-health student wondering how you can set yourself apart from a crowd of applicants? Are you wondering what’s going to happen once you’re off your parents’ insurance? Do you sympathize with the millions of uninsured or underinsured citizens in the US? There’s a reason the healthcare debate has come to the forefront in the upcoming presidential election, but you need to seek out the information to understand the issues!

The most common shortfall of pre-health students in their applications and interviews is a lack of understanding of the healthcare system. Regardless of whether it’s as a nurse, physician, administrator or public health official, it is imperative to understand the environment in order to better serve people.

You can slog through the 1,990 pages of the Affordable Care Act yourself, or you can sit back and enjoy some pizza while our officers sum it up (as well as the nation’s health care situation in general) in easy-to-understand language. Learn how you can become an officer for the upcoming year, and how you can get involved with the fight for an economically and ethically improved healthcare system!


Come to Savery Room 130 on May 19th at 7PM
