We have many undergraduate students who volunteer with us in health related projects. These projects, which welcome pre-medical and pre-nursing, pre-dental students, provide a learning opportunity in universal health care practices. 

Pre-dental students can shadow in a local dental office and assist the staff with non evasive tasks. Options for pre-medical and pre-nursing students include a children's clinic which provides care to kids with cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome, and other disabilities.
