The Beginnings of SPAPP

Great minds think alike.

When Joanna started thinking aloud to Lukasz about the lack of a support organization for pre-health students in Chicago, a new idea began to take form. Coincidentally and concurrently, Marysia had been thinking the same thing: Chicago's Polish American community lacked a distinct organization focused around students seeking careers in healthcare. With the conversation started and a strong partnership solidified, SPAPP was well on its way to becoming something great.

Thanks to Joanna and Marysia, the co-chairs of our organization, the first meetings of SPAPP were held in late 2013 and by February 2014, the team had a total of 8 members. Below is a photo taken at the 2014 PAMS Physicians Ball featuring a few of SPAPP's enthusiastic board members and avid supporters.
