One of our local ND students, Kyle McAvoy, was featured on WTHR last week! Kyle is a rising junior who has spent his summer preparing the Gennesaret Free Clinic's mobile clinic to serve the homeless of Indianapolis as part of the University's Summer Service Learning Program. The mobile clinic was forced to take a year off last year due to the pandemic, but will be providing free, patient-centered health care to a population that is often difficult to reach.
“It’s incredibly rewarding, to say the least," McAvoy said. "It’s honestly awesome when you volunteer and put yourself in this position, you’re going out to feel that you’ll help someone else but many times after you hear these people’s life stories, their perspectives on life, you feel you get more out of it than what you were even trying to put in.”
Watch the entire segment about Kyle's work with the Gennesaret Free Clinic on the WTHR website.
Kyle is one of six ND students completing the Summer Service Learning Program in Indianapolis this summer. Students are currently serving at the East 10th Street United Methodist Youth Program and St. Augustine Home in addition to the Gennesaret Free Clinic. Thank you to all of our members who make it possible for us to support these amazing students!
