Old Irving Park Community Clinic serves low-income adults over 18 years of age who are uninsured and underinsured. Due to the pandemic and an uptick in people seeking medical services, the VISTA is a key component to helping Clinic sustain services by assisting the executive director. The VISTA will enhance, refine, and maintain systems that increases the capacity of the Clinic. Focus is on database management, social media, staff training, community outreach, and a special event. The VISTA will learn about the importance of free and charitable clinics, access to free medical care, fundraising, database management, and the demographics of the Clinic’s patients.
