High School of Health Sciences

  • About
    High School of Health Sciences is a chapter of Squads Abroad, a non-profit supporting sustainable development goals to improve health and education outcomes in partner communities abroad. As a Global Health Squad, our school works in under resourced communities abroad to increase access to healthcare services, deliver health workshops alongside local students, and builds water and sanitation infrastructure projects that help keep students healthy and attending school. Our group also examines the social determinants of public health in the community through visitations of local health organizations and guest speakers to be able to compare and contrast our health systems at home.

    Please consider joining our chapter to volunteer with us or donate directly to build more water and sanitation projects that our partner schools have requested.
