UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM)

Our chapter promotes discussion of health policy among the medical student body - motivating students to think critically about the health care system.

We raise awareness and support ideals of universal health care. Through our events we hope to educate students on concepts such as single payer and the structure of the Affordable Care Act. CaHPSA was established in 2015 by students Mani Vahidi and Mark Wainwright with the help of faculty mentors.

Who can join? We are a medical student group affiliated with UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Our members include medical students across all four years of training.

A Past Event Highlight: Health4All Lobby Day 2016

Our members participated in the annual Health4All Lobby Day to advocate for increasing access, no matter the patient's’ documentation status, to health coverage.
