Bridging Networks for a Healthier Tomorrow

This year’s theme is centered on collaboration between organizations to increase healthcare awareness and access for the community.  Funds from the banquet will support our ongoing projects. SMASH-B provides FREE Hepatitis B screenings and vaccinations for the local community.  The PrimCARE program works to increase healthcare quality in Vietnam by developing healthcare workers, while providing a public health research and a primary clinic in underserved areas.  Additionally, the IKEP project offers public health experiences abroad for those interested in healthcare.
