It began as a revolutionary idea. It is now a beloved institution.
Since 1992, the Charlottesville Free Clinic has provided compassionate care to thousands of its residents lacking health insurance. Founded by two medical interns spurred to action by the plight of an uninsured woman who sought help too late, the Clinic remains true to its original premise: volunteers helping their neighbors. Last year alone, more than 500 volunteers served over 3,000 patients in more than 8,000 office visits.
