Recently, SRCC providers helped a patient whose insulin cost nearly $700 each month. This amount was more than a quarter of the patient's monthly income! With no health insurance, this individual concluded that rationing their daily insulin dosage was their only option.


Fortunately, a friend recommended they call SRCC. This patient received chronic disease management care at no cost and got their insulin filled for free. Thanks to SRCC and their partners, this patient is no longer forced to ration insulin each month.


I want the people here to know what a gift they have at the clinic where people like Dr. Hopkins and Dr. Bradbury (great, well-known and beloved doctors) are giving their time to help those in need.

I was in desperate need of medical help with no money or insurance. I had felt hopeless for months. After finding out about the clinic and reaching out, they were able to see me within a week. They helped me get the lab work I needed.


They showed me how to find medicine at the lowest cost. So many of my anxieties have been lifted because of their help. I am so grateful for them and hope this community knows there are people here willing to help the poor or those struggling financially without judgment.


What a gift you have, Rexburg, at the Rexburg Free Clinic.


Sincerely,

Tiffany Simmons

Members of the Idaho Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (IAFCC) Board of Directors (BOD) help shape and support Idaho's free clinic sector. Many Idahoans cannot access the traditional healthcare system because of systemic barriers, including a lack of insurance and financial means. Serving as a member of IAFCC's BOD is an exciting opportunity to make a difference for the people of Idaho.

Our team seeks board members from within the free clinic sector, including free clinic leadership, staff members, interns, volunteers, and clinic board members.


We are also looking for board member candidates outside the free clinic sector to diversify our team's expertise and expand partnerships. We are looking for candidates with backgrounds in academia, advocacy, business, financial, healthcare, legal, marketing, philanthropy, social services, and more.


Additionally, we seek board members with professional, personal, or lived experiences relevant to the patient populations we serve.

Please fill out our online BOD Application or contact our leadership team at admin@idahoafcc.org. We will accept applications until October 31, 2022.
