Harvard College Latinos in Health Careers

Purpose Statement

Harvard Latinos in Health Careers (LiHC) is a pre-professional organization whose objective is to provide undergraduate students with the resources to pursue their interest in a health profession. LiHC seeks to empower undergraduate pre-health students with academic, professional, social, cultural, and community resources. The group seeks to promote greater awareness and understanding of cultural and social issues that impact the health of our communities both within Harvard and around the world by appropriate means such as publications, meetings, seminars, and other educational activities. All undergraduate students are welcome, especially those interested in medicine and the health sciences. While Latin-American health care issues will be emphasized, our central goal shall be to promote and ensure the success of culturally aware health care providers and to foster a feeling of commitment to underserved populations. Together, in conjunction with the support of the Harvard faculty, graduate schools and community, we shall become both compassionate and effective health care leaders and providers in our immediate realm and throughout the world.
