Clinical track

CHEERing is not a medical NGO per se, but our focus on preventive health care means we and our beneficiaries benefit tremendously from having clinical experts (pharmacists, nurses, doctors, etc) on board.

Volunteering with CHEERing can also offer a tremendous hands on experience for clinicians who want to learn more about global public health and practice.

In recent years, our clinician volunteers have created protocols for medication storage at a local shelter, performed preventive health screening, and distributed OTC supplies such as prenatal vitamins and vitamin D.

Dr Mariam Jaffer is our clinical team lead and helps us to coordinate positions for health care professionals who want to volunteer with CHEERing.
