How did you learn about this organization?

I am a Board member.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Providing the needed medical and prescription medication services to each and every qualified (poor and uninsured) community member who seek our services.

What is its top priority in the long run?

Reducing, with the goal of eliminating, disparities in health care delivery. Preventing costly and life-threatening complications from diseases, such as diabetes, and lowering heatlh care costs in the long run, by providing health care, disease management and education, prescription medication and other ancillary services before the disease becomes complicated and more difficult to manage. Another top priority is to obtain adequate funds to continue to expand the capacity of the programs as more and more qualified individuals seek the services provided by this organization.

The Board, employees and volunteers of this organization are very dedicated to serving the more vulnerable members of our community through its various programs which include the free health care clinic and prescription medication assistance programs. It is a privilege to serve and be a part of this organization and to be among individuals who are passionate about providing health care and prescription medication to those who cannot otherwise afford it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many of the community members who seek our assistance have lived with untreated medical conditions and are receiving health care for the first time in many years. Patients of the free clinic often express their gratitude for our services and report an improved quality of life and feeling of well-being and improved ability to maintain their homes, jobs, and family.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If this organization had sufficient funding, I would expand the capacity of the free outpatient clinic by extending the hours of services provided; improve upon the diabetes management program; develop a lifestyle change/obesity prevention program; incorporate more education, e.g., disease management, medication management, nutrition, etc.
