Kelly, from Brookline, MA, was a freshman at the College of William and Mary. During her years at Brookline High School, Kelley expressed interest in medicine and community work. We matched Kelly to Healthcare for the Homeless, a walk-in medical clinic in Boston that focuses on community healthcare.
Her responsibilities included direct patient care: checking them in, taking blood pressure, pulse and temperature, and assessing glucose levels. Kelley tells us that working with this population was a profound experience for her and confirmed her career interests.
Her mother Nancy said, “It instilled a great sense of responsibility and it was a wonderful opportunity to try out something that might be interesting to her.”
