Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
International Medical Relief (IMR) provides acute medical and dental care and health education in an urgent care setting where patients have limited or no access to health care. We work in 74 countries and have served over 450,000 patients in our 20-year tenure.
Currently, International Medical Relief (IMR) is providing medical support for the COVID-Free Congregate Living Shelter residents in Denver. Our team has received one remarkable story after another as we save and change lives.
A healthcare staff member serving with our team remarked how the population we are working with is struggling and all too often forgotten, mishandled, or put aside, but the patients are incredibly wonderful people. Their needs are unique, their struggles pervasive, and their suffering ubiquitous. Greatness has come from the IMR team. This work is so meaningful and profound, it provides purpose and instills value unto others.
Help IMR bring much-needed services to this vulnerable population. This is a unique opportunity where you can lead a team and work on public health initiatives. Know that your treatments and open ears will have lasting effects on your patients. This population has been tested for COVID-19, and all residents have tested negative.
