Making a Difference: The Free Clinic Extraordinary Volunteers

Christine Lin

“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.”
 
Christine Lin, a second-year medical student and The Free Clinic leadership team member, is from Austin, Texas and received her undergraduate degree from Harvard University.
