SAFEST DRUG

  • 7 people are interested

**URGENT NEED**

We're a non-profit organization focused on making sure no one ever dies or becomes injured from a medication. Currently, we have a program that is focused on helping people gain access to life-saving pharmacogenetic testing. The goal of the program, with the support of our certified lab partners, is to help reduce adverse drug reactions, medication-related hospitalizations, and to be a "charitable catalyst" for overall safer medication outcomes, particularly for at-risk populations (i.e. people on more than 5 medications, a personal of family history of adverse drug reactions, prior history of medication-related hospitalizations, etc).

To operationally improve the program, we are looking for volunteer nurse practitioners or physician assistants to help with test ordering for participants and their healthcare providers who sign up for testing support on our website.

This is a remote volunteer position where you would work in collaboration with our volunteer Program Manager and a growing team of volunteers who are working to make this program a success.

To qualify, you must live in the U.S. and have an active license in good standing within your state of residence. It's not a time-intensive role and we anticipate this would be a 1 to 4 hours per month commitment.

Apply here on VolunteerMatch, or by filling out a brief volunteer application on our website at https://safestdrug.org/get-involved/sign-up-to-volunteer/
