Why I work at Neighborcare Health:
“I work at Neighborcare Health – 45th Street Homeless Youth Clinic because I believe in the mission to provide comprehensive health care services to young people having difficulty accessing care. We respond with sensitivity to the needs of our culturally diverse patients and we advocate and work with others to improve the overall health status of the communities we serve. We are able to improve their health by engaging, educating, and empowering young people. I believe in the ultimate goal of 100% access and Zero health disparities. Youth Clinic is the demonstration of these beliefs and mission and I am proud to be a part of this organization that supports the important work that we do.“
