Two summer interns experience the impact the free health clinic has in the community

KILMARNOCK—Two college seniors, Omar Jawhar and Liam McMillan, spent a good part of their summer this year volunteering at the Northern Neck – Middlesex Free Health Clinic (NNMFHC), where they were able to get a comprehensive look at the status and challenges of rural health care.

The NNMFHC operates a medical clinic, dental clinic and pharmacy at its headquarters in Kilmarnock. It is the area’s health care home for low income residents who have no health insurance, who are on Medicaid, or who are on Medicare but cannot find a provider or need help with medications. The NNMFHC served 1,628 individuals last year, including 747 who saw a medical provider and 1,087 who visited for dental care. More than 14,000 prescriptions were provided through the clinic pharmacy.

It’s a busy place, and help is always needed….
