Free and Charitable Clinics across the nation depend on volunteers, both medical and non-medical, to be able to provide much needed medical care to the uninsured. The spirit of volunteerism and giving back is truly a rewarding experience, one that is exemplified not only in the large scale NAFC C.A.R.E. Clinics, but in community clinics throughout the country where the underserved are getting access to medical care everyday. Get in contact with your local clinic to see what various volunteer opportunities are available! Not only are medical providers and other medical professionals needed, but non-medical people as well!
The NAFC holds one day events called C.A.R.E. (Communities Are Responding Everyday) Clinics, where over 1,000 uninsured patients will receive free medical care and connection to local clinics and additional resources, all of which is able to happen with the help of approximately 1,000 volunteers. For more information on C.A.R.E. Clinics and the next C.A.R.E. Clinics, please visit:http://nafcclinics.org/CAREclinics
Non-medical volunteers help with a variety of tasks including patient check-in and check-out, patient escorting throughout the clinic, entrance monitoring, volunteer registration and translation.
