Since 2008, HEC has been student driven and community directed to advocate for the upstream changes to affect the social determinants of health. By partnering with community organizations in the Seattle / Puget Sound area, we engage in campaigns to support community health. ​

Our mission is to learn, educate and take action on issues that promote health equity through interdisciplinary partnerships between students, community members, and civil society organizations.


We are all student volunteers juggling rigorous course schedules, work schedules, and home lives. Our passion drives us to find extra time and come together on common issues to work for change. There is no time left to fundraise and our budget is rather minimal given our large time commitments. Please consider making a small financial donation! Click Here!

Students come to us when they see an issue in their classes, patients, or communities and they don't know how to address them. We support them by providing training and any other resources they need to in order to advocate for change in these issues.
