Keck Peer Support Group

Keck Peer Support is a completely student-run organization aimed at strengthening the camaraderie within the Keck School of Medicine student body. They provide the opportunity for fellow medical students to express concerns and to obtain resources in a confidential manner in regard to their physical and mental well-being and academic success so that they may become better professionals and happier people. In addition, they hold events to encourage medical student peers to share their thoughts, whether it is by having a meal in a small group setting or holding informal study breaks in the student lounge.

For more information email The 2014-2015 officers are Wendy Hsiao, Victor Lin, Michael Silva, and Sharon Jiang.
