New Life Volunteering Society (NLVS) serves a dual purpose: providing the local community with free health services via the Devon Clinic and providing Loyola undergraduate students with opportunities to serve the community. NLVS also works with the Chicago Youth Program (CYP) to mentor inner-city youth that do not have access to social services due to location, poverty, or availability.

"Chinatown Clinic (CTC) provides free primary medical care to an underserved, mainly immigrant population. The clinic is the sole provider of healthcare for most of the patients and has served over 2000 people since its inception. In the spring, CTC also organizes its annual comprehensive health fair, bringing together students, translators, and physicians to serve more than 300 patients in one day. The heart and soul of the clinic, Nurse Hui, not only contributes her time but often uses her own earnings to purchase medications and equipment needed by the patient population.
Devon Clinic is a student-run clinic, staffed by Northwestern and Rush medical students. It provides medical care to the uninsured and underserved predominantly South Asian community in north Chicago. Additionally, Devon also promotes educating the underserved South Asian community in Chicago about medical issues and providing students the opportunity to collaborate and exchange ideas with medical students at other schools." -Chinatown Clinic and Devon Clinic of Chicago
"Every Sunday, rain or snow, four Northwestern medical students travel north to Rogers Park to volunteer at the Indian American Medical Association Charitable Foundation Clinic — more commonly called the Devon Clinic. There, working with community physicians, residents, and students from other Chicago medical schools, students will help provide health care to uninsured and underserved patients. Working primarily with a South Asian population, students strive to provide necessary health care as well as preventive care and health education. Physicians from the Indian American Medical Association, as well as nurses, technicians, translators and other volunteers, staff the clinic. The clinic runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and provides care to approximately 40 patients each Sunday.
Students at the Devon Clinic have a great deal of freedom and responsibility for their patients' care. They conduct physicals, take histories, and perform diagnostic tests, including blood sugar measurements and EKGs." -NLVS
