Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?
My motivation for joining the AmeriCorps is rooted in two factors: a desire to serve communities by working for an organization dedicated to improving public health and the belief that this is the best time in my life to do so. Firstly, I am passionate the medical field and am excited to help community members while simultaneously having the opportunity to better understand health care disparities. Secondly, I believe that I am in the ideal position to best serve as a corps member. As a recent college graduate, I will be able to fully dedicate my time to working for a host site, collaborating with other NHC members, and supporting patients at the Pittsburgh Mercy Family Health Center.
