For those who are unfamiliar, here is a bit of history on this amazing clinic. Established in 2008, The Rock Springs Medical clinic provides free healthcare and counseling services to roughly 5,000 uninsured middle Georgians who live in 81 cities. The volunteer staff includes licensed physicians, and nurses for medical needs as well as dieticians for health education and counselors for mental health, assisted by clerical staff and volunteers. This clinic is staffed by a skilled team of medical professionals, including: pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, licensed physicians, nurses, dietitians and counselors assisted by clerical staff and volunteers. Manufacturers work directly with the pharmaceutical director to keep the clinic pharmacy stocked. I am very proud that this clinic is around, and hope to see it serve our community for many years to come. Congratulations to this amazing clinic!
