Similar to the mission of the School of Health Sciences and Practice, the mission of StuHe (Student Healthcare Executives) is to help prepare tomorrow’s public health leaders to preserve, protect, and improve the health of individuals, families and communities through education, investigation, practice and service. Our goal is to partner with our faculty to help educate ourselves and fellow students, equip them to serve as public health practitioners, and imbue them with an understanding of the cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic influences on health and disease.
StuHE was started in 1999 as a student chapter of the association of ACHE (American College of Healthcare Executives). StuHE mostly consists of students from the School of Health Sciences and Practice, but is also open to students from all NYMC schools. The club was formed with the purpose of providing a network for students in public health to meet and exchange ideas on a local level. Members help with coordinating school-wide fundraising, community service events, & advertising.
We hope to promote integrity in all of our activities and seek to provide service to and collaboration with the local community, including health departments, as well as other health-related community organizations throughout the Hudson Valley.
