Medicine Encompassed (ME) is collaborating with Sparkling Hearts Foundation (SHF) to fundraise for patients in need of urgent medical procedures. Through this partnership, we hope to make a global impact by aiding people in low income areas to get the surgeries / recoveries they need.
Medicine Encompassed is a student-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit aiming to promote awareness and increase accessibility for those interested in future medical careers through various mediums. With a team of STEM-oriented individuals that are also passionate about biology, we are seeking to demonstrate the wide scope of what medicine encompasses. Recognizing the importance of expanding the medical field, our organization believes in accepting people from all backgrounds under one common interest. By bridging the gap between medicine, underrepresented minorities, and students from low-income backgrounds, our team of like-minded individuals is dedicated to creating more resources and opportunities in all medical fields.
Sparkling Hearts Foundation is a student-led nonprofit organization that was recently founded in Irvine, CA. Our mission is to enhance a patient’s mental and emotional well-being by donating gifts and activity kits to hospitals. Especially with the restrictions placed by COVID-19, we felt inclined to help alleviate some of the stress and loneliness that patients may encounter during this difficult time. We work with CHOC Hospital Orange, CHOC Hospital Mission Viejo, and Healthbridge Hospital to support hospitalized infants, children, and teenagers.
