COLLEGE & GRADUATE SCHOOL CHAPTERS
ABOUT PWH CHAPTERS
We started our college PWH chapters program because we are passionate about providing students with the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world through volunteerism. The officers of these chapters learn valuable professional skills while working for a cause they feel strongly about.
The responsibilities of student chapters include:
Developing partnerships with local hospitals
Collecting medical supplies from local hospitals and delivering them to local PWH warehouses
Educating their community on global health issues
Volunteering in PWH's Portland warehouse once a month
Organizing a mobility or crutch drive once a year
Raising money to pay for a shipment of medical supplies and equipment to a country of their choice
Hosting monthly global health education series lectures (optional)
Members of PWH college chapters are also eligible to apply for our medical mission trips!
