Uninsured individuals are less likely to receive preventive care, more likely to develop chronic illnesses, and more likely to be hospitalized for conditions that could have been prevented. All of these factors make it hard to maintain employment, build financial security, and break cycles of poverty.  

For more than 20 years, Alliance Medical Ministry (AMM) has been a mission-driven organization that provides access to comprehensive medical care to more than 2,100 working, uninsured adults living in Wake County. Health equity is an important part of what AMM provides patients in addressing the disparities that exist in our healthcare system. 

Comprehensive medical care provided at AMM includes acute and chronic medical care, lab and pharmacy services, health education, disease management, counseling, an on-site community farm, and a comprehensive wellness program. 

Reporting to the Executive Director, AMM seeks a Development and Communications Director to join their compassionate and dedicated team to help achieve their strategic vision and serve our neighbors.
