OA Institute Partners

We are grateful for all of the organizations with which we work, some of which are listed here. As healthcare reform unfolds, collaborative learning communities among partners with shared interests will be valuable forums for healthcare stakeholders to learn about and examine the effectiveness of various volunteer models in expanding access to specialty care for the underserved, particularly as the definition and needs of this target population evolve.

If you represent a similar organization and would like to be listed here, please let us know!
