I am a volunteer atv VIM-Jax. This is a free medical clinic which provides quality, free primary medical services to the low income working uninsured of Duval County, Fl. The clinic has been in operation since 2003 and run by volunteer physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacist, office staff, along with 3 full time employees. The clinic is well operated, friendly to patients and voolunteers..

VIM in Jacksonville is the most rewarding volunteer opportunity I have experienced in the pat 40 years of volunteering. Volunteering using my nursing skills allows me the best venue to give back to the community to people who so deserve the help. The mission of providing " Assurance to the Working Uninsured' is remarkably demonstrated through out the medical community with in Jacksonville. All of the staff and the patients are appreciative of the volunteers and their thankfulness is continually shared with the volunteers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sharing the joys of the patients as their lives are changed with health care provided, where they would not have had any except when they became so ill a visit to an emergency room, often too late, was their only source of health care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them obtain a larger facility to operate within and then encourage more healthcare providers to donate their time.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

nothing.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have made some friends at VIM and learned new skills. I have improved my patient teaching skills.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Appreciated, valuable, and appreciate being a nurse even more. I wish all nurses could volunteer here and perhaps they would understand what working together as a team can accomplish. Every one at VIM does all they can do to make everyone's day better, being supportive, helpful and showing up with only positive attitudes.
