Become a Volunteer

Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is an extraordinary example of what can be accomplished when a diverse group of talented professionals work together. Thanks to our dedicated medical volunteers, we have provided free primary and specialty care to over 5,000 adults who cannot afford health insurance across the Barrier Islands and beyond.
