Review for San Diego County Medical Society Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Providing medical care to the uninsured poor is a major challenge. San Diego is blessed with an excellent network of community health centers providing primary care to those in need. But what to do if the client needs a specialist physician? The Medical Society Foundation through Project Access enlists specialists to volunteer their time and to persuade the facilities where they work to do the same. This collaboration saves lives, restores function, and is a beacon of hope in the quest for equality in medical care. 476 clients were helped in 2010.

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

Reviewing client stories and results and assisting in the preparation of the annual report.

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

Improve outreach to community health centers and increase case managment staff to serve more clients in need.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I serve on the advisory board and volunteer to assist in evauation and other projects where they need help.
