Interfaith Cooperative Ministries offers free medical clinics to people who are uninsured. Each clinic has seen more than 80 individuals; all very poor, all without health insurance. Many have chronic health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. Some others come with only symptoms, saying they haven’t been to a doctor in six, ten or twelve years. Cathedral Health Services brings about 40 volunteer medical professionals and translators to each clinic, including medical doctors, nurse practitioners, RN’s, and phlebotomists. They also link women and families to community resources such as AHCCCS and WIC.
This is an opportunity for Christ Church members with medical training and Spanish translation skills to help give back to the local community by volunteering.
Volunteers also meet the 3rd Saturday of each month from 8:45 – 11:00 a.m., where food and clothing is sorted to help benefit Interfaith Cooperative Ministries.
