HMFC is a member of the Volunteers in Medicine (“VIM”) Alliance. The Free Clinic was modeled after the original idea of Dr. Jack McConnell who began the first Volunteers in Medicine clinic in Hilton Head, SC in 1992. VIM is a national network of free clinics that use retired and practicing medical professionals and community volunteers to provide healthcare to the uninsured. There are currently 74 clinics in the VIM program nationwide.
