VIM Talks is a series of networking audio sessions for VIM Alliance members. These sessions, hosted by the Volunteers in Medicine national office, provide an opportunity for members to exchange ideas and share their experiences on a variety of topics related to clinic operations.
VIM Talks was developed in response to repeated requests made by VIM clinic directors to provide more opportunities for networking and discussion.
An agenda will be sent out to clinic directors prior to each VIM Talks session. Directors and other VIM clinic leaders will be asked to pre-register to participate. Participants will be asked to share their thoughts and experiences regarding the specific agenda.
