Annie De Groot, CEO/CSO for EpiVax Inc, had a chance to sit down(virtually!) with Richard Asinof of CovergenceRI and Frank Casale, regional VP of TD Bank to discuss some big developments over at Clínica Esperanza. Clínica Esperanza, “Hope Clinic,” is located in the Olneyville neighborhood of Providence and serves a primarily Spanish-speaking immigrant population. Many in this community lack health insurance and have been left out by the traditional healthcare system in Rhode Island.
Annie, who helped found the clinic and now serves as Volunteer Medical Director, talks about the drastic increase in demand for clinic services during the pandemic. TD Bank recently awarded a $315,000 TD Ready Challenge Grant to expand operations.
Clínica Esperanza received their first batch of the Moderna vaccine last week, and have been busy vaccinating the community! Read the full interview with ConvergenceRI here.
