Scholar Profile

Jorge Campos Franco



Jorge Campos Franco is currently a senior at USC studying Human Biology. He has previously served as Chapter President of his fraternity, La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda, Fraternity Inc., and has completed two years of research exploring embryonic neural stem cells in the dentate gyrus.

Jorge is currently serving as President of the Kidney Disease Screening and Awareness Program (KDSAP), an organization focused on raising awareness about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). In Los Angeles, approximately 20% of the population suffers from CKD, the majority being Latinx. In an effort to reduce this health disparity, Jorge conducts free kidney health screenings and educational events in collaboration with the Neighborhood Academic Initiative Program (NAI). Jorge’s plan is to continue expanding KDSAP’s reach by collaborating with more community programs in the Los Angeles area.

Jorge is on pace to be Valedictorian of his class and will be applying to medical school next year.
