BENEFITING: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Hello and welcome to my fundraising page!
As you know, this November I'll be taking on my first marathon and doing it for a cause I truly believe in. Throughout the next few months, I will be supporting (along with your help!) the Mt. Sinai Adolescent Health Center.
During my first year of medical school at Mt. Sinai, I was amazed to learn about what the Health Center provides on a yearly basis (comprehensive medical, sexual/reproductive, mental health, dental, and optical services to more than 11,000 young people!). Now with the my second year medical school just around the corner, I have the chance to help provide those very services
Of the money we raise, every $1,000 will provide a full year of comprehensive health care to a young person in need. Here's the breakdown of the medical services we could directly provide:
$1,000 = Comprehensive services for one young person
$500 = Comprehensive exam, dental exam and cleaning
$250 = Three mental health counseling sessions
$100 = One comprehensive session with a health educator
$50 = One lab test
$25 = One prescription medication
$10 = A MetroCard for a young person to visit the Center
So if you're drawn in by either the notion of helping NYC's teens or by ushering me across the finish line, click the donate button and give through this site! I so appreciate you taking the time to learn about the Health Center and I can't thank you enough for your donation, big or small.
