Vision The clinic provides primary health care and education for those economically disadvantaged among us.  Nurse Practitioners operate the clinic in collaboration with volunteer MDs, NPs, RNs, and other health care professionals. They further extend care to those who do not have access to health care and are not aware of appropriate resources. The clinic staff works in coordination with existing services in the community and seeks to promote health maintenance through education, assessment and preventative health care. The staff coordinates ongoing care with professionals, agencies, schools, families, and  the larger community.
