Umbrella Mobile Clinic 

Volunteering:

  • BC licensed family physician

Are you a BC licensed family physician who is interested in making a difference in your free time while having a rewarding experience?

Come and join the Umbrella Mobile Clinic! We are currently looking for volunteer physicians and nurse practitioners, preferably who can commit to one on-site four-hour shift per month (plus travel time) to bring much needed medical services to the Mexican temporary foreign farm workers in the Fraser Valley.

The Umbrella Mobile Clinic has been very well received by its patients, and our doctors find it a rewarding environment in which to practice their profession while providing a much needed community service. Spanish is not necessary.

If you'd like to find out more about us or join the Umbrella Mobile Clinic team, please send and email to info@umbrellacoop.ca

If you speak Spanish, have a background in and/or are interested in community development, health services, health issues, social determinants of health and farm workers's issues, we want you! 

The Umbrella mobile clinic operates with the help of general volunteers in the areas of intake, pharmacy help, patient health information, social conversations and setup/takedown. We are looking for people with Spanish fluency that can commit to at least one clinic per month. Clincs are held on Sundays in the Fraser Valley.
