Our chapter was founded back in January 2005 by Amy Kapczynski, a former UC Berkeley professor and now current Yale law professor, interested in addressing the issue of access to medicines. Later that year, the chapter was officially approved by the university to be a student-initiated service group, and the first members attended their first North American conference. However, the chapter soon dissolved, only to be reinstated nine years later by a group of students passionate about global health and policy.
Today, the Berkeley chapter is getting back on its feet, and we are steadily working toward our goals to bringing about awareness toward the social licensing program at our university as well as making plans to change the status quo. Together, our board and growing team are working diligently to improve our own education of the system and to create concrete plans to meet our goals.
