Making a Difference: The Free Clinic Extraordinary Volunteers
“There are a huge number of people in our community, within a 15 minute drive of my house, that do actually live these lives of quiet desperation. Their resources are minimal. They often have an awful health status. Beyond emergency departments, their access to care is non-existent, and in many cases they can't see a way out. If not for The Free Clinic, I would never have known that reality. Once you have seen and understood their lives, it is hard to just ignore it. There is a small group of dedicated physicians at the clinic that are my role models.”
