In this episode of PCOM Perspectives, Melody Yazdani (DPT ’22) and Prachi Patel (DO ’24) discussed why they are passionate about volunteering their time despite their demanding schedules.

Melody serves as an official trainer for the Boxing with Parkinson’s program at the Center for Movement Challenges, while Prachi is the Director of the HEARTS Clinic at PCOM Georgia. Both are passionate about volunteering their time despite their demanding schedules. Melody and Prachi are representative of students across all programs who serve in Philadelphia, metro Atlanta and Southwest Georgia. 

Jay S. Feldstein, DO '81, President and CEO, shared information about the President’s Community Wellness Initiative, an important funding stream for the college’s volunteer work. One of the goals of the CWI is to serve local communities while enhancing the educational experience for PCOM students.

"PCOM is very proud of the volunteer work that our students provide to our community members," Feldstein said. "We're happy to highlight their work of giving back especially during this holiday season."
