Today I went to the Chamblee clinic and helped in the lab. This clinic primarily serves the Hispanic population. The disparities within Georgia are immense and it is always eye opening to serve in a Mercy Care clinic. I highly recommend volunteering within Mercy Care because it helps you see how socioeconomic status and language/cultural barriers relate directly to health disparities. There is only so much you can read in a textbook versus seeing the application in a real life setting.
