The Biddeford Free Clinic relies on a team of dedicated volunteer healthcare workers to provide medical care to the uninsured in Southern Maine. It is the only free clinic in Maine with a licensed pharmacy.
Additionally, Assistant Professor Matt Lacroix is highlighted in the annual report for his workshops on medications for patients with pulmonary and diabetic diseases. Lacroix works with the Sugarbusters staff by helping to introduce to them diabetes medications, so they can improve care for patients. He says the most rewarding part of the work is how much patients appreciate the care they receive.
Members of the UNE College of Pharmacy faculty have been volunteering at the Biddeford Free Clinic every month since October, 2009.
