Be trained to raise money from your friends, family and professional connections on behalf of WFHC. Past development experience helpful. Minimum commitment is six months. The Women’s Health Care Project (WHCP) began in 1974 as part of a larger social justice movement in Santa Monica, California. WHCP helped women learn more about their bodies and their health, share experiences and be empowered with knowledge. What is now Westside Family Health Center expanded to include prenatal care, pediatric services, adolescent health care and a family practice program that includes a strong healthy aging part. http://wfhcenter.org
