Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Puentes de Salud

The purpose of this organization is to ensure the health and wellness of South Philadelphia’s rapidly growing Latino immigrant community. It serves to educate future generations of community advocates, health care providers, educators and leaders by providing opportunities for responsible and respectful community engagement. Puentes de Salud believes that a comprehensive strategy to promote wellness in any community must also target the social determinants of health. This organization offers Jefferson students in all disciplines the opportunity to engage in this community.
