Promethean Group works in collaboration with other professionals and specialties to provide resources and a holistic experience for populations in need.

I support this organization because it's aim is to offer healthcare to all persons in need. Promethean Group provides medical care and resources to persons who have multiple barriers in accessing care. I promote this organization because the populations of focus are underserved, specifically the homeless, underprivileged youth, and the uninsured.
