What has been the most meaningful part of service for you?

Conducting PrEP screenings has been a meaningful part of my service. This involves calling patients to let them know about PrEP, getting to know them, and helping them determine if PrEP is right for them. I enjoy working one on one with patients and empowering them to protect themselves in whatever ways they see fit
