“The Best Way to Find Yourself is to Lose Yourself in the Service of Others” – Mahatma Gandhi
We believe that partnering with individuals who are eager to learn and who are passionate about our mission is the best way to engage with our community. It is because of the overwhelming commitment shown by Care Alliance’s volunteers that we are able to carry out our mission of providing quality health care and comprehensive dental services to those who may have otherwise gone without care.
Care Alliance is fortunate to have more than 150 volunteers, students and work experience partners each year give their time and expertise in a variety of areas. Health care providers (including doctors, nurse practitioners, dentists and specialists), nursing professionals and medical/dental assistants volunteer their expertise by supporting our staff and our patients. Care Alliance partners with several educational institutions to provide unique externship opportunities in medical records, billing and coding, finance, development, event planning and other areas of interest.
