“I wanted to be involved with The Free Clinic Leadership team because I aspire to
cultivate my understanding of health disparities by being in a position that gives
me the freedom to take initiative with projects, coordinate with health care personnel
and work closely with a patient population in need. The team and I are not only responsible
for the care of patients on Wednesdays but also responsible for the best care possible
for days in between by making patient calls throughout the week and checking for any
critical lab values we receive.
I have learned to hold myself accountable to long-term health outcomes by building relationships through continuity of patient care, which parallels what I would like to do in my future practice. I love being on the team and interacting with our patients, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, church staff and medical volunteers.”
