Please consider helping our neighbors at Miriam Medical Clinics- South Philadelphia Community Health Clinic out Monday 1/22/18 at 6:30pm while they present to the Point Breeze Community Development Coalition's Community Zoning Meeting. Miriam is applying for a variance to zoning code to open a free, community health clinic at 2006 Tasker Street. The clinic's architects, Via Laulima, LLC, live in the neighborhood, and are super excited to present the plans to the community. The clinic's board are heavily invested in Point Breeze, and are mostly members of Tasker Street Missionary Baptist Church. Once open, nearly all of the clinic's clinical volunteers will come from neighbors in a diverse array of medical professions giving back to our community through free pediatric, primary care and women's health care services! If you're a medical provider, especially in Peds or Women's Health, and interested in volunteering, please reach out to Charlie Michael or Miriam Medical Clinics!

This Wharton alum’s startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages

In launching her startup Frank, 2013 Wharton graduate Charlie Javice set out to help people exactly like Lac.

Frank has already attracted significant interest from investors, and recently raised $10 million in funding. Frank’s new lead investor is 1984 Wharton graduate Marc Rowan.

    This Wharton alum's startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages
    When College junior Kenneth Lac was applying to college, he had to fill out all his financial aid applications himself - his parents, first-generation immigrants, did not speak enough English to be able to complete the forms. When his mother lost her job at the start of last semester, Lac had to renegotiate his financial aid by himself, a process he described as "a struggle" that made tasks like buying textbooks for class and applying for study abroad programs extremely complicated.
