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.
