CMMB at Hunter College
The CMMB x Hunter Club partners with CMMB, a global health nonprofit organization, to advocate and bring attention to the lack of proper healthcare women and children face in the developing world.
We hope to help educate students, raise awareness levels, fundraise, and provide practical, real-life experience for students with interests in pre-health, public policy, international relations, and public health.
