The Free Clinic of Meridian opened on October 28, 2014, as a VIM Clinic.
The clinic will use the grant to purchase necessary lab equipment, exam tables, blood pressure monitors, a physician scale, and other exam room equipment.
“This award means a great deal to The Free Clinic of Meridian as we strive to serve the uninsured in our area,” said Brenda Hiatt, the clinic’s President and Board Chair. The receipt of this grant also adds credibility to the clinic and assists them in obtaining additional grants and contributions. “We are fortunate to be a part of Volunteers in Medicine, which gave us guidance throughout the development process and access to this much needed grant. We are most grateful to both Volunteers in Medicine and the AAFP Foundation for their support,” she added.
