Junior Board Spotlight: Max Morin

 Position: Continuity of Care Coordinator What does your position do? I coordinate the Continuity of Care (CoC) program. This is a program that matches first year students with WCCC patients who could use some extra support with their medical care. I make sure all students in the program are aware of their CoC appointments, and I assist with any problems they may have. I will also organize the selection of next year’s CoC students! What motivated you to get involved with the clinic?The WCCC...

Junior Board Spotlight: Brian LaGrant

Position: Mental Health Resources Coordinator What does your position do? One of my duties is to educate patients of the Mental Health Clinic, a subset of the WCCC, on affordable sources of psychotherapy throughout the city. I am available to help guide them through the process of contacting a clinic and setting up an appointment, as it is not an easy one. Most of my time is spent working with the Depression Screen. The Depression Screen was implemented earlier this year by the previous...

New York Student Run Free Clinic 2017

  Earlier this month, a few WCCC Members attended the New York Student Run Free Clinic conference at the Ichan School of Medicine. A yearly event, this conference aims to bring together student leadership of the student run free-clinics in the city, providing a forum to learn from experts in the field, communicate research findings, and discuss pertinent healthcare issues.

Third Avenue Health Fair

Members of the WCCC attended another community health fair this weekend! Third Avenue Health Fair: Eat Your Colors was a big hit yesterday at the 3rd Avenue Fair. We partnered with the dietitians from NYP’s Ambulatory Nutrition Service and welcomed ‘participants’ with a colorful array of fruits and veggies, tips to eat foods of different colors (variety is key!), recipe cards, and 10 raffle prizes for Farmer’s Market Green Bucks (each worth $10). We handed out apples and oranges. It was a...

Frederick Douglas Family Day

Last weekend members and volunteers from the WCCC continued our tradition of participating in local health fairs to help educate our community on healthy living. We tabled a booth at the Frederick Douglas Family Day where we educated families on hidden sugar inside popular food items that they might consume. First year medical student volunteers led the activity and advised participants that “added sugar is not so sweet!” We also talked with people about the WCCC and the services we provide. It...

Summer Students Program

This summer, the WCCC had some undergraduate students volunteering at the front desk of our clinic every week. We were so excited to be able to introduce these students to the health care field and the type of patients we see at our clinic. We spoke to one of our volunteers, Chola Kondeti, a rising fourth-year from St. Bonaventure University, about his experience with us.

For many women in the New York City area, our clinic is the only way that they are able to gain access to valuable screening and early detection...

We’d like to say thank you so much to our caterers, Great Perfomances, for providing all of our guests with...
