What are you most looking forward to this service term?
I am looking forward to using my language skills daily in my interactions with patients/clients at the clinic. I speak both Spanish and French and enjoy using those skills in order to break language barriers and help patients/clients navigate an often confusing health care system.
What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?
I am interested in returning to school to pursue a second bachelors degree in nursing. So eventually I would like to become a registered nurse.
I'm interested in learning about...
I am interested in learning more about how to manage chronic diseases (HIV/AIDS, diabetes, hepatitis c etc), improving access to healthcare services for underserved communities, cultural competency in healthcare, and how to prevent the spread of communicable/infectious disease.
