See what HSAFP Club Chapter Presidents are saying...

Starting a club was daunting at first; I had never led anything like it before. As a sophomore, I had no idea how to pursue a career in medicine, but HSAFP made it accessible for me and my peers. HSAFP's support helped me launch a successful club at my school, which now has over 80 active members. I'm looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together in the 24-25 school year, and so far, our meetings have been incredibly helpful for both students and parents.
