Beyond Clinic Walls

Beyond Clinic Walls connects students with elderly Norfolk residents through a partnership with Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia and EVMS' Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology.

Medical and health professions students spend time with their clients, talk about their medical issues and challenges and monitor their clients' day-to-day lifestyles. While they do not function as home health aides, our student volunteers seek to develop meaningful relationships with their clients and help them maintain their independence and quality of life.
