We are looking for volunteer physiotherapists who can commit to one Sunday afternoon per month (with flexibility) throughout the months of May to October. The position is for those interested in bringing much needed medical services to the Mexican and Guatemalan temporary foreign farm workers who come to BC and make an invaluable contribution to our agricultural industry.
Run by the Umbrella Multicultural Health Co-op, the Umbrella Mobile Clinic is targeted to the unique needs of temporary foreign farm workers and has operated since 2011. It operates on a popup basis, from a trailer converted into a medical clinic or in spaces donated by partner organizations. The team travels throughout the Fraser Valley providing Spanish language medical services, and consists of volunteer physicians, physiotherapists, Cross Cultural Health Brokers and Spanish-speaking support workers.
The Umbrella Mobile Clinic has been very well received by its patients, and our health care team find it a rewarding environment in which to practice their profession while providing a much needed community service. Spanish is an asset, although not necessary.
