Thanks to the commitment of our volunteers and partners, we continue accepting referrals and serving patients during the pandemic. We are working remotely to coordinate care, but patients are typically waiting longer than before because our specialty providers implement stringent hygiene protocols, including pre-procedure COVID-19 testing, to ensure safety.
Black Lives Matter
As a nonprofit rooted in social justice, we stand with Black Lives Matter. We are committed to listening, learning, and dismantling the systems that uphold racism and white supremacy.
