We are a student-run non-profit organization of 60 undergraduates attending Washington University in St. Louis.  While we span different academic disciplines and interests, we are united in our passion for global health equity.  

We meet each week, run campaigns and advocacy events, learn from each other, and form a supportive and energized community.

Our Partnership


This year, we are entering our seventh year of partnership with UDHA.  Year-round communication, joint decision making processes, and a mutual commitment to health equity ground our partnership for all staff involved.

 Throughout the academic year, our Director of Partnerships has weekly Skype calls with UDHA, we run campaigns to supply the budget, and we are kept up to date on the status of the projects.

Each summer, we send four to six Grassroots On-Site Work (GROW) Interns from our chapter to work with UDHA in Uganda.  Together with UDHA, they plan the projects and the budget for the coming year, build connections with the staff members, and experience first-hand the impact UDHA has on the community.
