Volunteers in Medicine Deals with the Crisis within the Crisis
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we implemented a Telemedicine Initiative to ensure that our 94 Volunteers in Medicine Clinics could provide free healthcare to more than 100,000 people in need – from the safety of home
Sadly, many of those volunteer healthcare professionals are older and therefore more susceptible to the disease, so they can no longer serve in-person at the clinics.
So we have developed a plan to help these heroic volunteers get back to saving lives.
Today’s technology gives us the ability to use Telemedicine in the fight against COVID-19 and other critical conditions, enabling providers to deliver care remotely while avoiding the risk of transmission of the disease.
In partnership with Doxy.me, we are equipping, training, and supporting clinics and their volunteer caregivers all over the U.S. to use Telemedicine to keep our neighbors, friends, and loved ones alive and healthy in the face of this historic challenge.
But we can’t do it without you.
Give today and help get our compassionate volunteers online so they can continue serving tens of thousands of people who need healthcare right now

Right now, in 92 VIM clinics spread throughout the country, thousands of volunteer professionals are heroically serving on the frontlines providing free healthcare to nearly 100,000 people in need. Given that many of these volunteers and the people they serve are highly susceptible to the COVID-19 virus, Volunteers in Medicine America launched a Telemedicine initiative to enable them to deliver care from the safety of home. With the help of generous supporters like you we can do even more…
