Organizations in DC work to provide access to healthcare services without discrimination on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity or ability. DC was severely impacted by the AIDS epidemic in the 90s which left a lasting effect on the city’s public health. You will have a chance to work with organizations such as Iona Senior Services, St. Elizabeth Hospital and the Armed Forces Retirement Home. Service projects include playing bingo while hearing the experiences of longtime DC residents or building awareness on public health issues by creating resource kits.
