Millions of Americans lack access to specialty health care. You can help change that.

Providing underserved Americans with access to specialty health care.

Imagine being diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, or another chronic illness, and being unable to see the specialist you need. This is simply reality for more than 30 million people in the United States.

While many receive essential primary care services from safety net clinics—a critical front line in our health care system—numerous barriers keep specialty care out of reach, including:

Provider Shortages

Long Wait Times for Appointments

Work Conflicts

Lack of Childcare or Transportation

How does MAVEN Project help? MAVEN Project’s digital platform connects safety net clinic providers with experienced specialists for consultations, mentoring, and education. As a result, patients at safety net clinics receive prompt, high-quality specialty care.

Our all-volunteer corps of specialist physicians averages decades of clinical experience at the highest levels and is united by determination to support frontline providers and broaden access to specialty care.
