Health Partners is the only free clinic for Miami County residents and provides great assistance for the uninsured. This clinic offers primary care for many individuals who would otherwise not get medical help. I have been serving here since June of 2007, and I have enjoyed it immensely. As a college student who will attend medical school in the fall, this clinic has been a great oppurtunity for me to learn firsthand about medical care and to also pay forward the blessings I have received in my life by helping others. The staff members are vibrant individuals who truly go out of their way to help the public. The volunteer nurses and doctors are not only helpful to the patients, but also are willing to help teach students and volunteers such as myself. Health Partners is a great place to work, serve, or come for medical care. Here you will be treated as a whole person-an individual with a unique story to tell. I will definitely be utilizing the skills and exposure I have obtained at Health Partners in my future as a medical doctor.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the improved health of patients.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
learning about medical care.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind-hearted and quite funny!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
offer more specific and advanced care.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Volunteer & I shadowed physicians, collected the walk-in list of patients and their symptoms on Thursday evenings, and entered patient and visit information into the computer. I also called patients and helped fill prescriptions.
