LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Students from Touro University Nevada, home to Nevada’s largest medical school and only school of osteopathic medicine, have created and launched a website offering a variety of volunteer services to the community during the COVID-19 crisis.
Called #MedReady, the site seeks volunteer opportunities for Touro students to give back to their community.
The program offers three primary areas: free K-12 online tutoring; free undergrad and MCAT online tutoring; and general community assistance, including grocery pick-up for seniors, assistance with screenings and other frontline opportunities for healthcare students.
The website is intended to help meet community needs while giving students the opportunity to give back.
McDiarmid, who serves as president of Touro’s Osteopathic Medical Student Government Association and its Student Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is also overseeing the coordination of volunteer opportunities for Touro students helping with COVID-19 screenings of the homeless population at Cashman and now the ISO-Q facility in downtown Las Vegas.
To request free services, complete the appropriate form on the website here and a student volunteer will follow up.
