#GivingTuesday: World Health Student Organization
World Health Student Organization (WHSO) is a student-run organization whose central goal is to provide public health-based services to underserved populations both globally and locally.
WHSO is best known for its international mission trips that send roughly 70 students each year to countries such as Haiti, Nicaragua and Panama. Our mission is to provide support in clinics and the local communities by identifying the needs of those communities and working to fulfill them through sustainability projects, education and research.
Trip participants also acquire an understanding of health care systems of developing countries and gain experience in clinical settings with diseases that are rarely found in the United States.
WHSO also aims to increase the community interest in global health through educational seminars and informational guest speakers.
Thank you for supporting WHSO on this global day of generosity.
