The medical ministry arm of RHP exists to:
advocate for the refugees at Cedar Point in navigating the US medical system
educate to promote better health and to equip toward independence
provide services onsite to make healthcare access easier
Visit homes to assist in scheduling appointments after accessing needs
Drive families to appointments as needed
Follow up on Dr. instructions, effectiveness of treatment, and correct use of medications
Plan and execute educational programs
Plan and assist with clinics such as flu vaccinations, sports physicals, kindergarten physicals
Communication liaison between school nurses and parents regarding the health of their children

Every Friday afternoon from 3-5 pm we have office hours in the community center and make home visits to evaluate needs, fill out history forms, and schedule appointments.
How To Get Involved:
Transportation: Our biggest need is for volunteers to schedule and drive patients to appointments. Most of our needs are on weekdays but clinics are typically on weekends.
