UC SAN DIEGO CHAPTER
UCSD BPSHI Chapter was established in 2015. Since then, we have been striving to serve the greater San Diego area, specifically Poway and Escondido Gurudwaras. We strive to improve community health by hosting screening clinics for chronic conditions linked to culturally relevant social determinants of health, such as the South Asian diet. We love working with the San Diego sangat and building a sense of community through our health clinics! Furthermore, we hope to start working with refugees and begin holding clinics in underprivileged neighborhoods, since San Diego has become a refugee hub.
In addition to hosting clinics, we have also started to incorporate service projects related to health. For example, this year, we celebrated International Women’s Week by giving a presentation on women’s health. We specifically focused on homeless women and made care packages with feminine hygiene products. UCSD BPSHI hopes to continue service projects such as this!
