Mission:
AMPHS is a humanitarian 501(c)3 nonprofit organization operated solely by volunteers, dedicated to advancing the health care of underprivileged communities across the nation and around the world. We accomplish our goals by providing accessible community activities that forge a firm foundation for the improvement of health and well-being.
Results:
We have held over 55 monthly free health screenings for underprivileged community members, partnering with local charities and organizations such as Interfaith Medical Center to provide HIV testing in addition to our standard risk factor screenings of BMI, blood pressure, visual acuity, and other vital signs. We have incorporated free prescription assistance, health insurance assistance, and corrective lenses assistance services into our programs to assist uninsured families. As an American Heart Association training site, we have trained over 300 people in emergency response skills, and are implementing a new Regional Community Training Program and Authorized Provider Program, which is anticipated to greatly increase the impact of our emergency preparedness courses.
