MEDICAL EXPERIENCE THROUGH SERVICE IN HEALTHCARE
We continually improve upon the impact of the organization on the community by making appropriate adjustments and developing new ideas to better serve the particular needs of the clinics and non-profit organizations.
We offer direct hands-on experience for UCLA students aspiring to be health professionals and function as a medium to educate UCLA students about primary care.
We foster a sense of community and cooperation within the organization through socials and our mentorship program and inspire life-long community service in our members.
MESH at UCLA is a student-run organization dedicated to helping non-profit health clinics optimize their services in exchange for the opportunity for students to gain a firsthand observation of various aspects of the medical field as they pursue careers in healthcare and medicine. MESH also works closely with several different health-care oriented, non-profit organizations, in order to impact underserved communities in all aspects of healthcare. MESH aims to act as a bridge between understaffed free health clinics and UCLA students interested in volunteering for their community and is dedicated to supporting non-profit health organizations both locally and globally. By encouraging student involvement in health-related service activities within the local community, MESH strives to promote awareness of low-income communities and their healthcare needs and to empower its members with the professional and leadership experience needed to make a difference in their communities.
