Penn State Student Volunteers

Students for Centre Volunteers in Medicine, established in the Fall 2019, brings together students who believe in helping others. Part of their mission states, “Through social media, community outreach, volunteering, and fundraising, our students are making a difference in the lives of others right here in Centre County.”

The Club will be works with other Penn State organizations to coordinate support for CVIM both in the clinic and at special events.
