Overview

The MAVEN Project envisions a world with universal access to quality health care. To make this vision a reality, we recruit an experienced corps of volunteer medical specialists and connect them with frontline primary care providers at community health centers nationwide via telehealth. This enhances providers’ capacity to deliver comprehensive care to underserved patients by utilizing expert consultation, mentoring, and education provided by physician volunteers. The MAVEN Project is now at a critical inflection point: the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the very structural barriers to health care access the organization seeks to address, brought significant attention to provider shortages, and catalyzed a meteoric rise in telehealth adoption and usage. We anticipate the need for our services will grow exponentially over the next 2 years, driven by a combination of continued economic destabilization, permanent job and employer-sponsored insurance loss, provider shortages exacerbated by burnout, and nationwide diminished health outcomes resulting from delayed care and post-covid complications.
