Why a Free Clinic
The loss of good jobs in Stephens County has led to increasing numbers of uninsured. Those who don't have insurance frequently can't afford preventative care and put off seeing a doctor due to finances. Then, they end up going to the Emergency Room, often sicker once they get there because they delayed treatment. The result is lost productivity in our county and increased tax expense to care for these residents.
