Mandee Schaub is a first-year student at Pfeiffer University active in addressing issues of health access in low-income Stanly County. Mandee interns for the Community Care Clinic in Albemarle, NC and is working on a semester-long fundraising effort that engages multiple community partners and stakeholders. Mandee is also the coordinator of Pfeiffer's Angel Tree program, which provides holiday gifts for over 100 children from low-income families every year.
The John P. Murray Community Care Clinic creates opportunities for people in Stanly County to receive medications for free or at reduced cost. At the Community Care Clinic, I am helping to organize a fundraising event to raise money to help the Community Care Clinic continue its vital work in Stanly County. I will be interning at the clinic this summer to gain experience and help with their mission of giving everyone access to health care. My life goal is to create a non-profit organization that provides migraine sufferers in rural areas with access to information, medication, anxiety management, and support groups.
