Put community at the centre of your passion for health.

CHASM empowers students to develop community health solutions at the intersection of social innovation and social justice.

  

So, what does that mean?

If you’re building a social venture that addresses a community health need— you might need funding, mentorship, and connections to community partners.

CHASM can give you all of that through our Impact Stream.

If you’re interested in using your passion for healthcare to support underserved communities—you might need to learn about responsible engagement and build a community partnership.

CHASM can help you lay the groundwork for an impactful project through our Needs Assessment Stream.

If you’re hoping to launch a community health incubator in your city—you might need best practices, like-minded peers, and institutional support.

Supporting healthcare innovation in the age of community-led development.

We’re empowering students interested in health inequity with the experience and knowledge they need to solve community health problems in an era where social justice and responsive engagement are the top priority. Does your community org need support from passionate students?

Bridging the gap between social justice and social innovation.

Entrepreneurship and community organizing often put themselves on opposite sides of the problem-solving spectrum. We want to break down those siloes by synthesizing models and practices from both. Do you want to help young people solve health issues through this hybrid lens?
