We envision mentorship and tailored resources that focus on student, resident, and faculty well-being and self-preservation (from the medical school years to beyond), through the first-gen lens.
Connecting to first gen resources/workshops at the UCLA university level (the established UCLA First To Go Initiative), including but not limited to:
- Mentorship (if interested) between First Gen medical students and First-Gen UCLA college pre-medical students.
- Networking between First-Gen graduate chapters (e.g. UCLA Anderson School of Management, UCLA Law, First-Generation Graduate Student Council at UCLA)
- Advocacy of First Gen concerns and issues at bimonthly UCLA First Gen Advisory Board meetings
