Event Details

 

 

The California Health Professional Student Alliance invites you to our annual Southern California regional conference at UC Irvine. Join us as we discuss healthcare reform and work toward our goal of making sure everyone has access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare through a single payer system. As one of the largest health professional student organizations in the state (5,000 members strong), we are proud to bring you an unparalleled networking opportunity to meet other change-makers, do-gooders, and activists. We hope to unite these future leaders in healthcare on our single payer platform for positive change.

This year we are excited to bring an action-focused single payer conference to UC Irvine. We are striving to involve more students and community members in the movement for universal healthcare. Come learn about leadership opportunities and ways to get involved in the movement!
