SHC provides access to health screenings and education in underserved communities around us. Our goal is to help participants in our community outreach programs become aware of any medical conditions they have and understand how to properly treat them (e.g., through healthy foods, active routines). We work hard to remove barriers to care because everyone deserves equal access.
The Comfort Project
SHC realizes the importance of elements that can help heal cancer patients, above and beyond excellent medical care. By offering additional services to cancer patients and taking a whole-person approach, we are helping cancer patients and their families maintain their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being throughout their treatment - ultimately, increasing their chances for survival.
Educating Future Leaders
Pursuing a career in medicine can be quite rewarding, but it can also be filled with many barriers. Studies show that in less than 10 years, the demand for doctors will exceed the supply of highly trained medical professionals. At SHC, we are fostering a successful path for students in underserved communities to become future health care leaders.
We focus on providing financial assistance to those who could use a helping hand. Through scholarships to students, funds designed to help team members, patients or even community partners, our goal is to provide assistance to those who need it – helping transform their lives.
