MEDLIFE at UC San Diego

Service & Changemaking (A-G) Category

Academic Year
MEDLIFE is a secular, volunteer-run global health organization whose mission is to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. Our patients did not choose to be poor, but they do choose to strive for a better life. MEDLIFE stands beside them in this pursuit. We seek to achieve this goal through partnering with motivated individuals to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and a safe home. MEDLIFE believes access to quality healthcare, education and community development are basic human rights. To this end, we commit all our resources to bring Medicine, Education and Development to Low Income Families Everywhere. That being said, we provide service opportunities for UCSD students both locally and abroad. Alongside our outreach projects, we actively learn about the local communities we work with in order to ensure we are providing the right, sustainable, and important care.
