The AAFP Foundation was proud to provide a Family Medicine Cares USA grant to the Bluffton-Jasper County Volunteers In Medicine clinic, which began seeing patients on September 20, 2011, and celebrated with a grand opening on November 9, 2011, at the clinic in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Through the Family Medicine Cares USA grant, the AAFP Foundation provided essential medical equipment and supplies needed by the clinic. Already an area with a large number of uninsured people, Jasper County continues to see an increase in unemployed workers, creating even greater need for free health care services.

- Total Patient Visits: 6,039
