My medical volunteer service trip will begin on May 3rd, 2012 and last for one year, or until I run out of fundraising money. As a Patient Care Management Volunteer, I will do the following:
– Support HHI staff at primary care field clinics during week-long medical service trips
– Facilitate communication between patients in the Dominican Republic and their physicians in the U.S.
– Collaborate with community health workers and social workers to connect patients with local resources
– Go out into the communities we serve to help individual patients with their medications, referrals to medical specialists, and the management of chronic medical illnesses
