Dedicated Team of Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Free Clinic of Powhatan.  The Clinic could not operate without our volunteers who generously donate their time and expertise to help our patients. 

The Clinic is mainly staffed by volunteer physicians, dentists, mental health counselors, nurses, lab techs, front desk receptionists, registrars, and other administrative personnel.  We greatly appreciate all of our volunteers!
