Student Collaborations Promote Immigrant Healthcare

First few Article Sentences

Since 2009, students from the Samuel Merritt University (SMU) Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Physician Assistant (PA) programs have been providing free health screening checks to an underserved community in South Hayward.

For the past year SMU students have been volunteering their weekends to work at the Hayward Day Labor Center (HDLC) off of West Tennyson Road in Hayward where crowds of immigrant day workers gather each morning and afternoon looking for hourly jobs. The majority of people who are seen at the multi-use Center are undocumented immigrants and low-income families with no insurance.
