Clínica Esperanza (Clinic of Hope) serves uninsured, Hispanic patients each Wednesday evening from 5:30-9:00 pm. With the support of Christ Community Clinic, Clínica Esperanza has helped meet the medical needs of hundreds of patients over the last three years. The clinic is completely run by volunteers. Student volunteers from all four medical school classes come each week and serve as interpreters, work in the lab, help update patient records, and interview and examine patients under the direction of attending physicians. The attending physicians from the departments of Internal Medicine, Family Medicine and Ob/Gyn provide patients with excellent care, while exemplifying for the students the importance of serving in the community as an essential part of the medical profession. Clínica Esperanza would also like to thank our faculty sponsors, Dr. Adams-Graves, Dr. Ellis, Dr. Lewis, and Dr. Steinhauer for their continued support as volunteer attendings. Clínica Esperanza is located at 2861 Broad Avenue in the Christ Community building. If you would like more information about Clínica Esperanza, please E-mail email@example.com.
