Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?
Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer at different hospital and clinic settings. Through this process, I’ve learned a lot about the underserved populations, especially around Pittsburgh. For this reason, one of the issues I am most passionate about in regards to existing disparities is adequate access to healthcare and health education, especially for minorities, immigrants, and those living under poverty. As a recent college graduate I initially felt that there was little I could do to help those who needed it most, however, after learning about AmeriCorps and the numerous ways that I could help the underprivileged, I knew that this was the best way for me to spend the next year of my life.
