In this episode, we are exploring the service done by AmeriCorps member Anna Loughman, who is serving this year with the Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (WAFCC) at the Community Outreach Clinic in Menomonee Falls. Anna describes the variety of ways she serves patients accessing healthcare and provides assistance to medical staff at the clinic. She discusses how she supports preventative health initiatives at the clinic to improve patient health outcomes, including programs focused on blood sugar management and high blood pressure. Anna also describes how her previous service experiences helped lead she to her AmeriCorps service this year. Listen to learn how Anna decided to build upon previous service experiences by dedicating a year to serving with AmeriCorps after graduating and how she has been gaining valuable experience working with a diverse patient population at the clinic before beginning medical school this summer.
