The Macon Volunteer Clinic plays a very active role in the Bibb Community by offering health care services to those who are unable to afford it otherwise. Preventive care and ongoing treatment are a vital part in keeping our community healthy. The doctors and nurses provide the services on a voluntary basis and are committed to the betterment of our community.

The clinic's atmosphere is warm and friendly. I normally leave the clinic feeling loved and cared for, and I'm not even a patient! It's like a second home. Our patients are special because they are our neighbors. They are working in our community and giving their all to make a living for their families. Its AMAZING to watch the difference that a simple medication or treatment can make in a person's life. Providing education about an illness (such as diabetes), detecting cancer early, or diagnosing a disease are invaluable services. I'm committed to helping others, and partnering with the Macon Volunteer Clinic is the best way I know to do just that.

Macon Volunteer Clinic serves the working poor in Bibb County, Georgia. With the help of professional and lay volunteers, the clinic gives loving, preventive care to working uninsured people who cannot afford health insurance in today's market. This segment of population is growing as employers fail to have the ability to provide health insurance.
