Mission Statement

The mission of the Agape Clinic is to improve the health of medically underserved people by providing quality community health services.

Description

The Agape Clinic began in 1983 when Barbara Stark Baxter, MD called the Dallas County Medical Society (DCMS) to ask about physician volunteer opportunities in Dallas. The director of DCMS had never had such an inquiry. He referred Dr. Baxter to Los Barrios Unidos, a clinic in the West Dallas Barrio. Unfortunately, administrators at the clinic feared that having a volunteer physician would jeopardi ... ze their much needed federal funding. So instead, they put her on its board of directors. "At one board meeting a passionate individual made a presentation for a clinic she wanted to start in East Dallas," Dr. Baxter says. And therein was her volunteer opportunity.
