Free Clinics - UHCAN Ohio
UHCAN Ohio is an active partner with statewide and local efforts to reshape the dental healthcare delivery system and improve overall population health. Our goal is to ensure that under-served Ohioans receive quality, affordable, accessible health care. Through training, we help community volunteers gain skills to have a direct impact on the health care system and help consumers acquire and maintain gainful employment, creating the potential for them to move out of poverty. We are seeking a VISTA Member to assist in the development of resources to equip consumers with the information and skills needed to navigate the health care system and access the care they need.
