2017 was a great year! Many thanks to all who have made it possible to serve over 8,000 grateful patients, as well as over 100 high school and college student volunteers at Westminster Free Clinic. You are changing ALL of their lives for the better!
I would be remiss if I did not add that our amazing physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, ophthalmologists, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, dietitians, psychologists, pharmacists, case managers, health educators, medical assistants, and other medical and non-medical volunteers feel their lives are being changed for the better too. They regularly mention how much they benefit from the positive energy and enthusiasm felt by all when they volunteer. We are so grateful for their help and they are grateful for yours as well.
The support of our donors and community partners make it all possible.
Our newest program, Healthy Teeth, Healthy Smiles, was launched in November and we are now able to offer free dental cleanings and x-rays in addition to our education, assessment, fluoride varnishes for kids, and referrals to treatment partners. We are grateful to all the dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants who have offered to help at our dental site and in their own offices. We always need more partners, so please let your favorite dental professionals know they can join us!
We have had amazing health outcomes for patients this year. We had our first graduating class of high school interns who are certified medical assistants, and our students are reaching their goals and going to college. We are currently working on reconnecting with all of our past alums. Check out the year’s clinic highlights in this newsletter.
