George Mason University's Mason and Partners (MAP) interprofessional clinics serve the uninsured and refugee community located in low income and medically underserved areas in Northern Virginia, with a bridge-care model providing health care, and mental health services for vulnerable populations located in low income and medically underserved areas. The clinics provide services to high risk individuals suffering from substance use disorder and work in partnership with local agencies.
GMU is also working closely with AmeriCorps to strengthen health connections and improve care communication, care coordination, triage, and patient surveillance across two communities in Northern Virginia. This community-based training program is critical to building the public health workforce and serving underserved communities to support people in their health and wellness journeys. The program also will help address pandemic-driven public health needs, including mental health.
