BSN student, Manuel De La Cruz, discusses how giving back through community service has helped to enrich his experience at AUHS.

AUHS regularly provides support to the community via food drives, health screenings and other events designed to provide needed services to the disenfranchised. The health services events provide critical care to the surrounding community, and aid in the development of the students’ professional confidence and acumen within the healthcare field. AUHS students’ participation in these philanthropic events aids in the development of their awareness of the populations they are training to serve. Academic excellence is enhanced by this holistic approach to training and values based personal development.

All AUHS students are required to participate in a certain hours of community services in order to graduate.
