"Be strong and do not give up, for your work
will be rewarded"
With one in five Americans lacking health insurance, there are
many people suffering with unmet medical needs. In an effort to
address this situation locally, Dr. Kim is working with Knoxville's
medical community to develop an expanded initiative to address
the health needs of those who are unable to pay. With more and
more people requiring these services, there is an urgent need
for additional funding and expansion, including:
|Money to grow the clinic to serve more of those in |
|Space to house additional physicians, nurses, and |
|volunteers willing to help|
|Support for individuals and families without means |
|to access medical care|
|Renovations and expansion of our current space, |
|including additional exam rooms, plumbing, |
electrical, heat/air, painting, and carpeting
|Needed medical equipment, supplies, medicine, |
|lab work, radiology, and other diagnostics|
Committed to Serve
Since our clinic's inception in 1993, Dr. Kim and a small group of volunteer physicians have seen over 5,800 patients,
all funded by volunteer help, personal donations, and grant assistance when the value of our service was recognized.
There is an urgent need to expand the service through additional medical resources and personnel. After Dr. Kim
organized a public forum at Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church, an article in the Knoxville News Sentinel and an
appearance on WBIR-TV, a number of area physicians have offered to help. These commitments have precipitated
the need for additional office space where physicians can treat patients.
A fund has been established to support the Free Medical Clinic of America, a not-for-profit organization.
