When operational, the Ada Jenkins Medical Clinic provides high-quality medical services at no cost to uninsured patients in Northern Mecklenburg county. Primary care and specialty care is available to all ages for both acute and chronic conditions. The Clinic offers an array of services including nurse assessments, lab work, medication management, preventative care, patient education, and referrals for diagnostic testing or specialty care that we cannot provide onsite. Our Community Health Nurses serve as health educators, patient advocates, and referral agents for our patients.
Volunteers make these services possible. Dozens of local primary care physicians, medical specialists, mid-level practitioners, nurses, interpreters and administrators engage as medical clinic volunteers. Davidson College student volunteers play a critical role in clinic operations.
