MY STORY
Hi friends and family,
 
For the past year, I have had the absolute privilege of serving as a Co-Director for the Social Services Department at HAVEN Free Clinic, a student run primary care clinic which provides uninsured patients in the Greater New Haven area with quality and comprehensive health care services free of charge. Through this experience, I have witnessed first-hand the systemic inequities which impede access to healthcare for so many of our patients. Unfortunately, many of these barriers such as housing and food insecurity and unemployment have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Working with so many inspiring patients, hard-working volunteers, and community organizations through the clinic has greatly shaped my perspective on healthcare and shown me the importance of being an advocate for patients.
 
I am writing to ask for your support in our annual ¡ANDA! 5K Run/Walk on November 14, 2021, a fundraising event which provides a huge portion of our annual clinic budget. I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me for the event. To do so, you can either donate to my personal fundraising page or send money to my venmo (@Yasheen-Gao). Any amount will go directly to helping to provide quality healthcare to our patients.

All proceeds from this event will support HAVEN Free Clinic, a non-profit organization that partners with Yale University to provide comprehensive primary care services to members of the New Haven community free-of-charge. 
 
We are a student-run clinic that has provided comprehensive primary care at no cost to uninsured patients in New Haven for the past 16 years. In 2019 alone, we cared for over 650 of our community members. The annual 5K race, our signature fundraising event, typically raises 70% of our total annual departmental budget.
