Advancing YCTY's Mission
The mission of Alliance Medical Ministry is to serve working uninsured adults of Wake County in need of affordable health care. When I began volunteering as a doctor to patient interpreter in 2013, I was immediately struck by how hard the staff works to provide complete care for their patients. Doctors don't just give shots and prescribe medications. Their team has established a Wellness Program that gives patients the tools they need to make lifestyle changes to improve their overall health. A flourishing community garden on the clinic grounds offers the opportunity for patients to take home fresh food and learn healthy recipes. Diabetes and nutrition classes support patients in making healthy choices. So, when I asked Executive Director Megg Rader about offering a yoga class for patients, it was a no-brainer. In fact, she and the doctors had already been toying with the idea. Read the full story on our blog.
