A message from the Staff and Board of Directors of the Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine
The mission of the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics is to ensure the medically underserved have access to affordable health care. The NAFC and its members are dedicated to ensuring that patients receive quality health care. To quantify and qualify the care provided at the Free and Charitable Clinic network, the NAFC formalized a set of Quality Standards for member organizations.
This program has the full endorsement of Dr. Casey who is very eager to begin a dental hygiene program. The plans have been reviewed by a number of dentists and fortunately for us we have a volunteer, Linda Wolfe, who has experience with dental clinics and has made some recommendations.
