Making a Difference: The Free Clinic Extraordinary Volunteers

marcella muysson

“The Free Clinic is essential to describe what my experience in medical school has been like so far. While it’s a great resource for the Lubbock community, it also is a great resource for students that want to learn and practice medicine every week. I have practiced taking a history and physical, learned basic medicines and labs and continually improve how I present patients to upper-level students and physicians. Most importantly, I have gained a better understanding of the Lubbock community and what challenges low-income patients face. I am excited to continue volunteering at The Free Clinic and help improve peoples’ health and well-being.”

Marcella Muysson, is a second-year medical student from Dallas, Texas. She attended Trinity University in San Antonio.
