I have been on the board since 2004. I am very excited to be able to say we started the free clinic. I also volunteer to work there about once a month. I always leave there feeling so humble and greatful that I got to help people who are in desperate need of medical care. Most of these people would do without proper medical care if it were not for this clinic. I hope we can maintain this clinic for years to come.

I have been a volunteer with Mamou Health Free Clinic for the last 2 years. It is amazing how these programs have helped so many people in the surrounding communities with free health care and also prescription medications. I am blessed to be part of these programs because of the care that we are able to offer to the less fortunate. Otherwise the patients would have no other options for health care. It would become expensive for these patients to have to travel for good healthcare when most can not afford. They have good healthcare right here close to home for FREE. Thanks for all the volunteers for making this possible and also Mamou Health Resources for providing a great asset to the community.

As a Board member, I am grateful for the efforts of Mamou Health Resources staff and medical professionals. These programs have helped a great number of people who otherwise cannot get medical checkups, prescription medication, and counseling for their particular illnesses.

I was introduced to this clinic through a friend, I am the only one in my family bringing in any income with no medical insurance, without this clinic I wouldn"t know what to do. I went to another clinic, and it took them forever, but when I switched to mamou they were on top of eveything. I am very happy with the service they provide. The only thing I would change is the waiting time, sometimes you have an appointment but are not seen then, I know it can be hard to see patients on time but that's the only thing I would change

I am self-employed with no medical coverage and unable to purchase financially. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, high colosterial and osteoprosis. Without this clinic I could not afford my medication or MD visits.

As a patient advocate and employee for Mamou Health Resources, Inc. I have to say I enjoy coming to work each day. The services provided by the company is very needed for the community, without the medical clinic and medication assistance there would be a lot of patients without medical care. It's a pleasure to work for a company who is very passionate about the care of their patients. The patients are very thankful for the assistance we provide, they often state they do not know what they would do if we did not provide these services. The patients are often referred to us by various number of other professionals, such as Doctors, Pharmacist, the local Medicaid Office, local Mental Health Clinic. This makes me feel the services are very needed for the community. I've been working here for a long period of time and enjoy being able to do a job that is needed for the community.

I have been employed by Mamou Health Resources, Inc. for several years. I have watched both the Free Clinic and Medication Assistance Program grow over the years. It is amazing to know that we are helping so many people.

As an employee of this organization of eight years, I have to say that since the opening of the free health care clinic in September 2008, another door has been opened to our community that offers professional, caring and compassionate health care services to them at no charge. Our staff and volunteers show the patients how much they put their hearts into this service and our patients are very grateful. This is reflected by the constant referrals that patients are making by word of mouth to other community members and letting others know of our clinic. The growing number of patients is a true and positive sign that we are doing the community good! I am proud to be part of this organization and helping the community as we do is such a rewarding job and experience.

I am a very proud employee of Mamou Health Resources, Inc. I have been given the opportunity to help our community in many ways. Our free clinic provides free health care to many people who otherwise would have none. Our medication assistance program provides medication to people to live a healthier life. I have seen people come to our clinic who has been diagnosed with diabetes in the past but could not see a doctor or get the medication to control this disease. Our clinic provides healthcare, education and medication to treat diabetes and a list of other medical conditions.
