Broaden access to affordable health care for the medically underserved by increasing public awareness, promoting volunteerism, and supporting and advocating for the nation’s safety net of Free and Charitable clinics.
The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) is the only nonprofit 501c(3) organization whose mission is solely focused on the issues and needs of the more than 1,200 free clinics and the people they serve in the United States. Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAFC is an effective advocate for the issues and concerns of free clinics, their volunteer workforce of doctors, dentists, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, technicians and other health care professionals, and the patients served by free clinics in communities throughout the nation.
I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with NAFC. My Team Captain was very knowledgeable and helped me to do my best to assist incoming patients to the appropriate area for medical assessments.
