Making a Difference: The Free Clinic Extraordinary Volunteers

Free Clinic

“Before medical school, I knew I wanted to provide care for the less fortunate. The Free Clinic was one of the main reasons I chose the TTUHSC School of Medicine over other medical schools. I researched it before confirming my acceptance knowing it was something I wanted to do.
 
I love the independence in being able to see your own patient from start to finish, come up with your own plan, and see the patient out knowing you have positively impacted their health. The learning experience from students older than you who have been through what you are going through is truly invaluable.”
 
Larrité D. Reed, is a third-year medical student from Arlington, Texas. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from the University of Oklahoma. He serves as the president of the Emergency Medicine Interest Group, vice president of the Medical Student Service Organization and is a planning committee member of the Texas College of Emergency Physicians.
