Medical outreach is held for underprivileged communities and this time we’re reaching out to Mountain Empire! Mountain Empire is a rural area that has one of the highest poverty rates in San Diego County.

We need volunteers! Volunteers will be assisting nurses and physicians during this event, which may be beneficial to people considering a career in medicine or health. Most importantly, you’ll be having lots of fun while helping out your community :).

When:  Sunday, September 20th (7:00AM – 5:00PM; You may sign up for specific shifts)
Where: Mountain Empire High School, 3305 Buckman Springs Rd, Pine Valley, CA 91962
