Philadelphia Organization of Health Professions Students
Philadelphia Organization of Health Professions Students (POHPS) is seeking volunteers. Check out their Instagram page for more info on the organization.
POHPS is a coalition of over 2,500 students from various health- and health-related graduate programs across the Philadelphia area, and we have been working to combat the COVID crisis and its effects on our communities in a variety of ways, including:
Developing and sharing a large collection of informational resources, such as COVID-related information and advice (in multiple languages and in the form of a daily newsletter, regular vlog series and an upcoming podcast), public support programs, and remote volunteer opportunities based on the needs of collaborating community programs.
In addition to our opportunities for student involvement in COVID-related efforts, we also have various programs designed to promote wellness and social engagement during this time of social distancing. These programs are aimed towards Health Professions/Graduate Students and members of the general public, as well as Health Care Workers in the area. Programs include virtual meditation, virtual meet-ups and buddy systems, and yoga.
