Community Medicine

Helping the Entire Community

Community medicine doctors provide care for local residents, increasing access to healthcare for communities far from hospitals and major cities.  RISE Clinic uses this method to provide education on disease prevention in rural communities where awareness of health and wellness are limited. 

Community doctors are able to be versatile in diagnosing and treating patients. However, these doctors must be able to halt contagious diseases that can spread easily throughout the community. The addition of these practitioners will not only provide healthcare to areas previously unable to have access to doctors, but more importantly to bring awareness to communities about ways to prevent the spread of diseases.
