MediCorps - Summer - Medication Outreach Coordinator
The Viola Startzman Clinic is a vibrant safety net clinic serving the most vulnerable patients in Wayne and Holmes Counties. Our team of passionate staff and volunteers thinks outside of the box to meet the needs of our neighbors. The VISTA member who accepts this position will join our current team along with 3-4 other VISTA members in helping the clinic to better meet the needs of our low income, complicated patients. Our patients are often on multiple medications, and the majority of our patients are uninsured and have no way to pay for these medications. We also regularly encounter senior citizens and others in the community who cannot afford medications and are becoming more and more sick as a result. This VISTA position will work to create solutions to help address this significant barrier to care for low income patients.
