In this program, second-year medical students mentor first-year medical students.

First- and second-year students at the Gary campus visit Eads Elementary School in Munster, Indiana, to speak with K-5 students about specific topics such as the meaning of a disability, types of disabilities and how to treat others who have different needs.
Medical students work with Habitat for Humanity throughout the year, building community ties and helping others in need.
