Charting a New Course while Helping Others with the Wisconsin Association of Free & Charitable Clinics

In this episode, we are exploring the service done by AmeriCorps member Amber Scarborough, who is serving with the Wisconsin Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (WAFCC) at the St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Pharmacy in Madison. Amber describes how she helps patients accessing medications at the pharmacy, as well as working with individuals that would like to donate medications and working on outreach efforts to increase awareness about their services. She also discusses how she is assisting at the Food Bank at St. Vincent de Paul each week, and the connections and ideas it has brought to her efforts supporting the pharmacy. Amber later describes how she came to her AmeriCorps service with WAFCC despite not having a background in health, as she was seeking a new direction from the graduate program she had been completing. Listen to learn how Amber is striving to help address the societal issues she had studied through her service helping uninsured individuals access medication and how her service as a second-generation AmeriCorps member is helping her explore new paths to help others in the future.
