WHO WE ARE
Our nonprofit mission is to improve access to high-quality specialty health care among diverse and underserved populations.
The Story of MAVEN Project
How we started, where we’re going.
With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2015, world-class physician and San Francisco native Dr. Laurie Green recognized that while getting insurance might now be easier, accessing care would not.
Our early years centered on supporting the phase-in of the ACA, building the infrastructure for a new telehealth platform and fostering partnerships between leading medical school alumni associations across the country.
Since then, The Maven Project helped close the gap between opportunity and need by bringing together a group of active and retired physicians with diverse backgrounds in healthcare —united in their desire to utilize their medical expertise in service to frontline clinics in under-resourced communities.
In under a decade, one physician’s idea to give back has expanded into a platform of hundreds of the country’s leading physicians volunteering to serve a network of safety net clinics and health centers across 16 states.
Our work is rooted in four core principles:
When frontline care providers work in partnership with medical specialists, patients receive better care.
Our unique model works within current fragmented systems to instantly give providers and their patients dramatically better care and health outcomes.
We support safety net clinics and health centers in providing high-quality healthcare to people who often face the most significant barriers to care, especially in Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and low-income communities. Our committed group of volunteers means we can support participating clinics at no additional charge.
We’re inspired by wanting to build a better experience for frontline providers and their patients by cutting through the many barriers that keep people from accessing prompt, high-quality care that’s tailored to their unique needs.
