“This will pay for 10 patients to get one year of care,” said Robin Roberson, executive director of the clinic.
The clinic serves about 15,000 patients per year, and 30 local physicians donate their services to the clinic.
Clients of the clinic are people who earn too much to qualify for public assistance, but not enough to be able to afford health insurance.
Rotary Clubs serve their communities by raising funds for causes such as the free clinic.
