Three UCLA students have been honored with the 2016 Charles E. Young Humanitarian Awards for their outstanding commitment to public service. Ethan Haik, a second-year neuroscience student was honored for his role in creating the Bruin Science Fair, an outreach program that helps foster a love of science in students at two under-resourced middle schools in Los Angeles. Minali Mohindra, a fourth-year neuroscience student, was recognized for her work with the Pediatric AIDS Coalition (PAC), an organization she has volunteered with since fall 2012. And Jimmy Zheng, a fourth-year biology student, was recognized for creating Street Outreach, an extension of UCLA’s Mobile Clinic Project that has operated weekly in the area of Sycamore Avenue and Romaine Street in West Hollywood for the past 16 years.
