Last shift of 2021-2022 academic year – Sunday, May 15, 2022

That’s a wrap for this school year! We are happy to have been able to return to regular WISH Clinic activities and reconnect with the community in a COVID-safe fashion. Today, we worked with Dr. Alex Macaulay (Medicine) and Katie Peterson (Pharmacy) in clinic. We were also able to meet Sunny Dhillon, the new Director of Primary Care for Mount Carmel Clinic. See you all this August for our summer event!
