"I'm one of the logistics gals. I order, inventory, pick up and deliver supplies likes syringes, needles, bandages and hand sanitizers. I pick up the vaccines and transport it to the clinic. I stock the nurses stations and help them prep needles and syringes. I also do warm calls to follow up on no-shows, call waitlisted kupuna and help with any other tasks when needed," said Haitsuka
