The San Diego City College Health Center and Disability Support Programs & Services presents As I Am, a welcoming space for students dealing with chronic medical challenges. 

Meetings are held every Monday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Students are invited to share coping strategies, build community and receive support for the challenges of suffering from a chronic illness. 

“It’s always important to educate people on chronic illnesses and the struggles of it,” said Stacy Imgrund Nambounmy, a student at City College.

The goal is for students to not feel alone in this difficult time. As I Am provides a confidential space for those who attend.

Professor Carrie Gordh, a professor at City also faced challenges in her every day life with chronic illnesses.

“I think it’s wonderful,” Gordh said. “Students will benefit from this safe space.”
