Founded in 1999, the Rhode Island Free Clinic’s mission is to provide free, comprehensive medical care and preventive health services to adults who have no health insurance and cannot afford those services; and to serve as an educational training site for aspiring health care professionals.
The Clinic mobilizes vital health resources for Rhode Island’s uninsured, working poor and low-income adults. The Clinic also provides the most efficient and cost effective alternative to emergency rooms for uninsured residents seeking comprehensive health care.
RI Free Clinic Founders' Event
The Clinic held our 9th Annual Founders' Event on October 2nd at the Providence Marriott!
We were thrilled to honor a wonderful Clinic Partner, Delta Dental of Rhode Island, with our Founders' Award, a passionate provider, Dr. Walter Hollinger, with the Steven Brin Physician of the Year Award, and a dedicated volunteer, Dr. Caroline Troise, with our Distinguished Service Award.
The evening raised over $170,000 for the Clinic! Thank you to all our supporters who turned out for the Clinic!
