Hi friends and family!
I am so excited to be participating in the iANDA! 5K for HAVEN Free Clinic on November 14th, 2021. All proceeds from this event will support the HAVEN Free Clinic, a student-run primary care clinic that partners with Yale University to provide free comprehensive primary care services to uninsured members of the greater New Haven.
I've had the honor to serve as one of the Executive Directors for HAVEN this past year and have seen first-hand the impact of the clinic in the New Haven community. The healthcare system in this country is broken and the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the systemic inequities experienced by immigrant and uninsured communities. Unfortunately, our patients have been particularly affected by the pandemic. Thanks to the dedication of my peers at HAVEN and our amazing community partners, our clinic has been able to provide extra support to our patients during this time.
I would greatly appreciate your help sponsoring me in this event. To do so, you can donate on my personal fundraising page or give money to me directly via venmo (@Betty-DuranBecerra). Any amount, no matter how big or small, will be going to a great cause!
