Subject: Welcome Alliance announcements

Description: Dr. Wayne Altman started the Welcome Alliance Clinic to provide school physicals for immigrant and refugee children in the Woburn/Burlington community. These children cannot attend school until they complete their school physicals, and many of them are uninsured or unable to access healthcare. Students have the opportunity to get trained by family medicine physicians, perform school physicals, and counsel patients on topics such as sleep, career advancement, and nutrition. Beyond the clinic, students will organize community events to promote career and personal advancement for the children, such as mentorship programs, book/school supply drives, and field trips. Our mission is to increase healthcare access to the immigrant and refugee population while supporting their social and academic transition into their new communities.
