WHAT ARE WE?
Colors for Coats is an organization that aims to spread awareness about important issues in the public health field through creative means - from health care disparities to environmental crises to public policies, we create opportunities for students to collaborate and implement projects that will have a direct impact on communities. Every two months we will focus on a different public health-related topic by bringing different professionals to our platform and holding fundraisers and projects to help communities on a global scale. We emphasize leadership, creativity, and service by fostering a community of students who can take their own initiatives and bring their own ideas to help make a difference.
We organize projects, fundraisers, and guest speaker events to educate others and directly involve ourselves in issues that individuals in communities face. We believe that it is important to directly contribute to the communities around us with the leadership of students across the world.
Connect with Experts
We collaborate with public health professionals to educate our audiences and bring discussion to our virtual meetings. By bringing different speakers to our platform, we hope our students can learn more about different topics through the perspectives of professionals and understand their significance.
With our team of students, we emphasize the importance of each individual to use their creativity and take initiative to plan activities that positively impact their local communities. Every team member has the opportunity to take advantage of their leadership position to expose themselves to these areas of community service and management.

Our monthly health care topic is...
For years, the controversies surrounding diets and fitness have persisted. Staying indoors due to the Covid-19 pandemic has influenced people's food choices, and the New Year has brought about an even more significant impact on people's nutrition and diets, as they make their resolutions. Thus, our topic for the months of January and February surrounds eating disorders. As we explore this topic, we will take into consideration the influences of media, mental and psychological factors, weight loss/gain, genetics, and environmental factors.
