Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) national office Executive Director, Sasha Bianchi, participated in last week’s National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) Symposium in Denver, Colorado. Representatives from twelve VIM clinics and Volunteers in Medicine national board member Ned Allen were also in attendance. The NAFC generously provided space for VIM Alliance members to meet, share experiences and learn about VIM national office priorities.

The theme of this year’s symposium was “Our common threads: Change. Compassion. Connection,” highlighting the power of collective action. Volunteers in Medicine values our collaboration with NAFC and the many organizations represented at the symposium who share our vision of health care access for all.
