What are you doing this summer? Volunteer with Project HEALTH!
What is Project HEALTH?
It is an organization that seeks to break the link between poverty and poor health. We also work closely with doctors, nurses, lawyers, and social workers to provide patients with a holistic approach to health care that complements the care provided by health professionals in the clinical setting.
What does Project HEALTH do?
We mobilize college students to work as caseworkers in urban community clinics and provide low-income families in Baltimore with access to a wide variety of resources. UMBC, in partnership with St. Agnes Hospital, has launched a family-resource desk to connect families to community resources critical to their health, safety and economic survival. Project Health is a national network with sites in Baltimore, Boston, New York, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., and Chicago. Universities participating in Project Health Baltimore include the Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University in Maryland, and UMBC.
