News: Medication Assistance Program Volunteers wanted! - Deadline: August 31, 2017

August 8, 2017 - 11:00am
The Medication Assistance Program (MAP) is recruiting self-driven, enthusiastic undergraduate students who speak Korean or Spanish. 
Students must show an interest in helping low income and uninsured Korean and Latino patients access the medications they need. MAP volunteers work at the Koryo Health Foundation Community Clinic in Koreatown on a weekly basis. Our primary goal is to identify and enroll eligible low income/uninsured patients in Patient Assitance Programs (PAP) so they can receive free or reduced cost medications. Many of our patients are immigrants or speak only their native language. Through this program, volunteers also learn how a nonprofit community clinic operates, work alongside nurses and other hospital staff, get patient interaction, and aid a vulnerable population.
