::Welcome to the Sikh Students Health Initiative::

Welcome to the Sikh Students Health Initiative Blog. We are a new organization bringing awareness to Sikh students interested and empowered to advocate for health.

The ::humanitarian:: factor is an integral part of what it means to be a Sikh. Within Sikhism, there is a compassion towards all of humanity, advocating for health and well-being is one way to express this. The Sikh Students Health Initiative hopes to educate both ourselves and others to be more aware of issues that affect us directly and indirectly. Health is a human right that should be provided to all, regardless of socioeconomic factors. This organization hopes to reduce the burden of disease that affects the Sikh community both locally and globally, and in doing so, reducing the overall burden of disease impacting society.

We welcome your interest!

We are currently working on our official website (currently under construction):
