Specifically, she volunteered as a COVID-19 test site volunteer at the free medical clinic Bread for the City and passed out meals withMiriam's Kitchen. At Yale, Maxine teaches high schoolers about the nuances of healthy relationships and detecting signs of abuse throughCommunity Health Educators, leads the Yale Graduate-Undergraduate Mentorship Initiative, and serves on the board of Yale’s Timmy Global Health chapter.
