The S-Files

In this episode, we are exploring the service stories of two AmeriCorps members, Paige Hill and Kamya Moultry, who are serving with the Wisconsin Association of Free & Charitable Clinics at the Perry Family Free Clinic in Madison. Paige and Kamya describe the different ways that their service supports the goal of the clinic to provide quality healthcare for uninsured and under-insured Black men and all who are impacted by disparities in healthcare in the local community. Paige discusses how as a Public Health AmeriCorps member, her service focuses on directly working with the patients in different ways and looking at the social determinants of health that impact the patients. Kamya describes how as an AmeriCorps VISTA member, her service focuses on expanding the capacity of the clinic to serve the public, including community outreach, partnerships with other nonprofits, and assisting with grant writing. Listen to learn how Kamya and Paige are working to expand health care access and how their AmeriCorps experience and the memories they have made will carry over into their continued work to help others in the future.
