The organization welcomes all CHP students to join and participate in various volunteer and fundraising activities in efforts to educate the Charleston community on minority health awareness issues. The organization gives back via community service and fundraisers and gathers for social events as an avenue of well-deserved stress relief. A few of the organization’s community service events include the Minority Health Fair, Burke High School mentoring program, PINK House, Charleston Miracle League, HALOS Project and the Boys and Girls Club of Charleston. SHPURD meets every other Monday during lunch for general business meetings and as needed for other events.
