Review for Northern Neck Free Health Clinic Inc, Kilmarnock, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I retired and moved to the Northern Neck of Virginia in 1984. I am a registered nurse and wanted to continue helping others as a volunteer in the area. I was introduced to the Clinic by a retired physicain in our church, who had been instrumental in founding the Clinic. That was 16 years ago and during that time I have seen the Clinic expand from a temporary building to a permanent 10,500sq ft. facility, providing chronic and acute health and dental care, counseling, education and pharmacutical services to poor and uninsured patients in 5 Northern Neck counties.

Counseling diabetic patients is my speciality, to provide training that help them deal with diet, medications and diabetic related health issues and the use of a glucometer to measure blood sugar levels.

The NNFHC is a blessing to this community to both patients and to the staff and volunteers, who want to stay active and useful. Come visit us.
