Frontera de Salud is a service organization founded and staffed by medical, nursing and allied health students committed to bringing primary healthcare to the under-served.
Our mission is threefold:
- To address community health issues by delivering cost-effective primary care to communities in need;
- To further the clinical competency of Frontera volunteers by providing settings in which to perfect their burgeoning skills; and
- To encourage students to reflect on the profession of healthcare as a moral practice. While the project is aimed at aiding those in need, it recognizes that aid to be a statement of the humanistic ideal of healthcare.
