Medical project to help patients in Lynn

The Lynn Community Health Center recently launched a collaboration with the Medical Alumni Volunteer Expert Network, a California-based nonprofit that is creating a national corps of semi-retired, retired, and other experienced physicians willing to donate their time to medically underserved areas. Through the MAVEN Project, (Medical Alumni Volunteer Expert Network), doctors provide remote video consultations with Lynn patients needing specialty care, as well as teaching, mentoring, and advising the local providers. “It allows patients to receive the same high level of expertise expected of a referral consult while allowing patients to remain in an environment where they feel comfortable, accompanied by a primary-care provider who they already trust,” said Brian Headley, a physician’s assistant and the center’s MAVEN project coordinator.
