MPA Doctors Volunteer at Homeless Shelters

There are always people less fortunate and in need of help.  St. Vincent DePaul had asked for help with caring for guests at their homeless shelters and MPA has stepped up for the cause.  A special thank you for Dr. Michelle Achor who volunteered October 2022 at the women's shelter and Dr. Marc Greenberg who volunteered December 2022 at the men's shelter.  This volunteer service will be ongoing, so if you are interested in volunteering and would like more information, please reach out to Dr. Greenberg.
