Are there health-oriented clubs or organizations that I can get involved in?

The Ithaca College Pre-Health Society (ICPHS). This organization is run by students and they meet 4-6 times per semester. The ICPHS serves as a network for students to help provide information on where to get volunteer experience, how to prepare for the standardized tests, and how to go about applying to graduate and professional schools. In addition, they bring in speakers, such as representatives from schools or health care professionals, to speak with students. Contact icprehealth@ithaca.edu for more information.
