Health Professions College Council




Ambassador Program

HPCC students serve as ambassadors to the college and promote the college in and around campus. A significant role ambassadors play is to attend freshman and transfer student preview sessions to offer insight on student life and the College of Public Health and Health Professions




HPCC works with the undergraduate program directors to raise money for the undergraduate program’s annual fund-raising event. Each year, the event is held during the month of November and money raised directly benefits a local organization providing health services to the Gainesville community.
