Mission Statement

Our mission to empower communities through preventive care and educational measures relies on a universal standard of care and a culture of professionalism across all chapters, allowing us to engage respectfully and effectively with the communities we serve. We strive to provide service by recognizing the humanity in everyone. We recognize that our efforts to provide service to each other and our communities are constantly improving, driven by a commitment to listening first and fostering an equal exchange of knowledge. We strive to provide services with equal accessibility to all the communities we serve through the elimination of traditional barriers to healthcare caused by lack of native language resources and culturally sensitive providers. Our events, meetings, and facilities are safe spaces where patients can expect sensitive care that is free of stigma/pre-judgment and inclusive to all backgrounds.

Description

Currently, we are looking for pediatricians or primary care physicians to volunteer their valuable time to provide healthcare to the Punjabi/Sikh diaspora in Punjab, India, over Zoom. These would essentially be where you, as a physician, would talk to the patient and assess their health problems and concerns, as well as focusing on preventative measures. Please note that many of these individuals have never been to a physician before and may or may not know their family histories. As such, we are looking for proactive, Punjabi speaking, and kind physicians to engage with this isolated diaspora within the Punjabi community.
