“What is the Patient Referral Program?” you might ask…
This program promotes sustainability by ensuring that our patients receive adequate follow-up care after a brigade. This program assists with necessary medical care that falls outside the scope of brigades and helps facilitates the entire process of administering this care. For example, if a brigade group meets a patient who needs some kind of long-term medication or a surgery that they are not able to pay for on their own, our team will work with the patient, students, and nearby hospitals in order to obtain the necessary care for the patient. Meanwhile, students work hard to organize fundraising events on their campus to cover the costs of the care.
The proceeds of your purchase will go directly toward covering logistical cost of the Patient Referral Program (i.e. the cost of transporting patients from their communities to doctor or hospital visits) and toward obtaining care for those patients whose needs ought to be addressed immediately or do not have time to wait for donations.
“What is so special about this calendar?” you might ask…
