Health Care Navigation

One of the most important pieces of health care is simply navigating the vast multitude of resources available in our community. A core mission of the clinic is to help you become more accustomed to the ways the extended Charlottesville community can help you. As a result, on this website itself, resource tabs to help you with this task have been added. Additionally, contact Ashwin Mahesh at am3gf@virginia.edu for more information on the Street Sheet (linked in a tab), a comprehensive resource database for patient care.

Moreover, if you are confused about any part of a given resource (whether that be affordability, financials, or if it is the right resource for you) don't hesitate to let the clinic help you!

 

The Clinic's Mission

The mission of the clinic is to help underserved members of our community navigate health care within Charlottesville, Virginia. To do this, the clinic pledges to establish continuity of care in The Haven day shelter and to help its residents with establishing connections to resources in our local community.
