Engineering and Health Community Outreach
The Engineering and Health Community Outreach (EHCO) program began in 2016. The travelers went to Memphis, TN during their spring break. This trip was focused around volunteering with local Memphis companies to improve both healthcare and the Memphis community. Through collaboration with Serve901, a volunteer organization in Memphis, EHCO travelers had the opportunity to work with children’s hospitals, medical device companies, and local community organizations. The ultimate goal of the EHCO trip is to give travelers an opportunity to volunteer domestically while also providing them with opportunities for professional development.
During the 2017 EHCO trip, the volunteers worked with Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Church Health Wellness Center. They also attended professional development and networking opportunities with Tech 901, Binghampton Development Center, Memphis Bioworks, and Medtronic.
