Each year, IFM works with Washington University and St. Louis University to find students who would like to volunteer in our clinics. We receive a number of interested parties and, once selected to participate, students pledge to volunteer for at least one year in our community clinics and serve our patients.
On Wednesday, August 9th, Clinical Director Stacy Lobello led volunteers through a training session in which students were introduced to IFM’s mission, services and to each other as well. The training was held in our Hancock School Health Clinic, which serves all residents of the 63125 zip code. Students genuinely enjoyed their time, getting to know one another and learning about their role within IFM.
These volunteers assist us in reaching many more patients through our clinics than we could do on our own. We are so thankful for those students who pledge their time to removing barriers to healthcare for so many, and to help IFM further our mission.
