The Student Health Coalition Archive Project describes a collaboration between underserved communities and college students in the 1960s through the 1980s. The goal of the collaboration: improve access to health care, by means of community organizing, primarily in the rural South.
The origin and development of the Student Health Coalition, the evolution of various special SHC projects in distinct areas of Appalachia, and the establishment of several affiliate organizations all came about from a series of key events. We’ve created timelines to visually represent each of these chronological narratives. Visit the About page to scroll through and learn more.
