Community Health Students Participate in Cry America Event

Community engagement remains a top priority for SHHS Community Health students.  With the help of Assistant Professor Ritika Bhawal, students joined the CRY Walk for child rights last month on September 25th.  The walk benefits the outreach of CRY America to give children access to education and healthcare, as well as basic protections from abuse and exploitation  The CRY San Diego walk event was a big success with the maximum number of participating teams and highest total fundraising as compared to the other CRY chapters across the nation.  The event inspired our students to continue working for and in the community to better serve the underprivileged.  You can still donate to the NU team here and click on the photos below to see the large image from this public event:
