AMSA at UTSA
The Corazon Clinic started in 2000 with one medical doctor, a notebook, a couple of patients, and a box of first aid supplies and medications. In 2014, the clinic averaged 30 volunteers, and 1,289 patients signed-in. The notebook has turned into patient charts, and the box of first aid supplies has turned to drawers and shelves of donated supplies. The clinics volunteers range from pre-health profession, to graduate students, to health professionals. Corazon Clinics mission is to provide healthcare services and education to those without access to standard medical services. The clinic strive to increase the quality of life for our patients.

The program will be completely free of charge and is participant-centered that fits the needs of those we serve through needle exchange, harm reduction education, medical care, HIV/HepC testing, case management and recovery coaching.

Run by AMSA members Andrew and Sam, The purpose of EEA is to reach out to emergent bilingual students who are having difficulty in their classes. Students who are immigrating from other countries are not used to doing their course work in English classes. These students struggle to just speak English, and are placed in fast paced core classes.
We aim to visit these schools and provide our assistance as English communication partners and course focused tutoring, so that these students can excel in their courses and can be inspired to pursue higher education.
