Volunteer at a Coalition Community Clinic
Volunteer as an Medical Provider at a Coalition Clinic. Many of our clinics rely entirely on volunteers providers. Providers decide their level of involvement, from one 3-4 hour clinic per month to one per week. We also need Specialists to provide care to patients in their office, or at one of our clinic sites.
