    Afya donated PPE kits to the Metro Doula Group (MDG) COVID Response Team who distributed them to birthing people and partners who would otherwise not have access to protective gear. The mama, Joenesha, is with her twins wearing a surgical mask donated by Afya!


    Afya is honored to support people giving birth, protecting babies and families, and serving our community in healthcare settings. •

    For our first blog post of 2021, an Occupational Therapy student intern, Carina Frantz of @mercycollegeny, discusses a holistic approach to Occupational Therapy and what she learned during her time at Afya.


    "My internship as an occupational therapy student at Afya Foundation has illustrated for me how vital a holistic approach is to occupational therapy (OT). Combining medical and social models, OT understands that people have been shaped by ongoing physical and psychosocial forces to produce individuals with uniquely tangled histories, identities and physicalities."

    Afya has sent four shipments of medical supplies and equipment to partners across four Native American tribes and five states out west, including @coreresponse, @lakota_children, @adoptanativeelder, @johnshopkinscaih, and the Annie Wauneka Life Care Center. During this time of crisis, we are focused on serving the most vulnerable and will continue to find ways to do so.


    Today, we feature a blog post from one of our volunteers, Elliott Yancy @mowge_ , breaking down the history of healthcare for Native Americans and how Covid-19 has impacted their elderly populations. Please check it out, learn more, and share with your friends. Link in bio.

    Here is another blog post from one of our very own community members, Jessica. She is serving as an Occupational Therapist Intern at Afya.


    She says, “I was only sure of one thing when I was searching for a career; helping people realize their full potential is what felt gratifying for me. The question was, which career would fulfill that feeling? Occupational Therapy. “


    “At Afya, I implement interventions that help facilitate my clients participation in volunteering. As the founder of Afya, Danielle, says, “You need to get to the underbelly of it all.” That is what OT embodies – understanding what is impeding someone from meaningful engagement and providing the tools they need.”
