Millennium Fellowship Project: A Health Hub
A Health Hub provides free health care and assistance for refugees in the DFW Area. This semester, we hope to expand our nonprofit to a larger scale, starting with Pittsburgh as there is a large refugee population here. We believe that health care is a basic right and will work to make sure that everyone has access.
As a team, we plan to host a free health fair for refugees to monitor vitals, do lab work, and arrange one-on-one consults with doctors to allow the refugees access to free personalized health care. We also want to host one program in mental health, offering the refugee populations a multitude of ways to take care of themselves, their health, and their families while adjusting to life in the United States of America.
