Background on Open Door Clinic:
The Open Door Clinic was created in 1990 by a group of physicians who acknowledged a need for quality healthcare for the uninsured. The clinic treats over 600 patients yearly and focuses on offering “free health care services with dignity, professionalism, and concern for the uninsured and indigent residents of Alamance County.” The clinic is a non-profit organization that offers healthcare and medication to qualified patients free of charge and is maintained solely on grants, fundraisers, and donations. The PA program at Elon University maintains a close relationship with the Open Door Clinic. As students, the clinic provides us an opportunity to volunteer at the clinic and gain valuable hands-on, patient contact experience; in turn, the clinic benefits from our help and can provide patient focused medical attention. The success of a non-profit organization requires the donation of time, effort and money from individual supporters. It also requires an abundant amount of financial support! We hope that you will partner with us and help support the Open Door Clinic!
