Enriching communities one student at a time. The Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) program is a fresh call to action to change the way we address health and success in our communities. The program relies on precious existing community resources, namely its children, and combining these resources in a manner that supports students’ success and health based on their academic and career interests and the desire to contribute to their community in a positive fashion. The goal of the HPAC program is to promote community health and success by empowering students to address persistent health disparities and challenges by enacting health projects in their communities. HPACs support students as they identify personal and community resources and connect them to pressing community health concerns. Students in HPAC use these connections and learning to make a positive difference now and into the future.
