Cardinal Free Clinics
The Cardinal Free Clinics were created to fill a void in the health care safety net that is met by very few other providers. The two branches of the Cardianl Free Clinics are the Pacific Free Clinic and the Arbor Free Clinic. CFC respresents a new and innovative model for providing free health care to the underserved. The Mission of Cardinal Free Clinics is to provide culturally appropriate, high quality transitional medical care for an underserved patient population and to educate and empower a new generation of health care leaders to proactively address health disparities and improve access to care in their communities.

As an activist and social organization, we are dedicated to raising awareness of queer health issues and promoting equal social and political rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people.

Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA)
As the motto for the Latino Medical Students Association (LMSA), "Querer es Poder" unites the diversity of Latin America and those interested in it - its different countries and cultures. Statewide, LMSA works towards this goal by promoting Latino culture, supporting Latino medical students, and working to improve Latino health disparities. Stanford's LMSA Chapter (previously Stanford Raza Medical Association) achieves this by providing academic and social support for Chicano/Latino medical students at Stanford, increasing the number of Chicano/Latino medical school applicants throughout California through recruitment, educational programs, and direct involvement in the applicant selection process. LMSA members also support the efforts of organizations such as Arbor and Pacific Free Clinic who are committed to the improvement of health care in underserved communities.

Stanford University Minority Medical Alliance (SUMMA)
The goal of the Stanford University Minority Medical Alliance (SUMMA) is to increase diversity in the health professions in order to better care for underserved communities. Our annual pre-medical conference is one of the oldest on the west coast and draws hundreds of students from throughout the Bay Area. SUMMA is a coalition of Stanford medical students, including representatives from the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA), Stanford American Indigenous Medical Association (SAIMA), and the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). Together, we provide support to Stanford's minority medical students as they work toward their degrees and to a future in health care with better outcomes for minority patients.
