Free Clinic Receives Impact Award
The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington has received the Nonprofit Excellence Award for Impact from the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington. The Impact Award honors a nonprofit, or one of its programs, whose performance and delivery to the community sets a high standard of quality and outcomes. The award is recognizing the Free Clinic’s Diabetes Program. Click HERE to read more about the 2018 honorees.
In 2015, Free Clinic volunteer physicians recognized the increasing number of patients with diabetes being seen in urgent care. A program was launched to coordinate the services for these patients. A team of volunteers which includes physicians, nurses, health educators, pharmacists, podiatrists, optometrists, dental hygienist and a community health worker work with diabetic patients and their families to address their disease, self-management and education.
A patient is seen by the Diabetic Caregiver Team and all diabetic medications and supplies are provided at no charge. The community health worker engages with patients to address their social needs that are interfering with improving their health. Currently, 102 patients are in the diabetic program. Partnerships have been formed with WSU-Vancouver to provide healthy eating classes; with farmer’s markets to provide vouchers for fresh fruit and vegetables; and with Clark County Food Bank to bring the Fresh Food Truck to the Clinic in the summer. In the most recent patient survey, 95% of the patients in this program were highly satisfied with their care and services.
