athenaGives is thrilled to announce that its short film, "Connecting Care for the Uninsured," took home two awards Sunday night at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship's annual awards.
The film highlights the inspirational work of New Braunfels Volunteers in Medicine, a free clinic in New Braunfels, Texas,where there are an estimated 14-21,000 uninsured patients without a place to turn for primary care. Since going live last year, athenaNet has enabled their staff and volunteer providers to collaboratively care for these patients, many with multiple chronic diseases, while maintaining a high level of quality care. They even utilize some of the same metrics and quality measures as others across the Network!
Check out the film, deemed 'Best in Show,' below:
Are you in the Dallas area and want to help?
If the story of New Braunfels Volunteer In Medicine inspires you, our partners at The National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (NAFC) and the Texas Association of Charitable Clinics will be holding a one-day free medical clinic event on Saturday, April 9, 2016 in Dallas, Texas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. This clinic event is for those in the area who have no or limited access to health care.
The Dallas C.A.R.E. (Communities Are Responding Everyday) Clinic Event will offer free basic medical care and health education to the area's medically underserved. Being a volunteer (clinical or nonclinical) at this event will give you the opportunity to help hundreds of people gain access to medical care they otherwise may not receive. You can find more information here and if you plan on attending, let our athenaGives team know!
