Western University of Health Sciences students have found their sense of community by providing health care services throughout the city of Pomona. They reach out not only to provide medical assistance but are now reaching out to help and support other academic institutions within the community. It is now time for our students to answer a community call for educational help. Many elementary students in Western University’s surrounding area have been significantly affected by the education budget cuts and increasing class sizes. read more
