La Casita de la Salud, a student-run medical clinic, is bridging the gap in healthcare disparities. We care for the uninsured, undocumented, and underserved individuals of East Harlem by providing quality and culturally competent care for all patients regardless of the ability to pay.
La Casita de la Salud emphasizes preventative medicine while educating medical students about the complex needs of underserved communities.
• Provide care for patients regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or nationality
• Practice preventative medicine through patient-centered care and health education
• Nurture an environment in which students, health professionals, patients, and community members learn from one another
