Dr. Jennifer Beatty of The Breast Place serves as a volunteer physician with the clinic. She reviews abnormal breast reports, recommends a plan of care, and provides follow up breast exams and procedures at no charge to the patient. “Providing comprehensive care for the women facing a breast health issue without a healthcare payer source is important to me,” says Beatty. Wanda Lefler-Weart of the Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic states, “The staff at the Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic is excited about this grant and we are most appreciative of Dr. Beatty’s contributions to women and their families. It does take all of us to demonstrate that all women are worthy of care. Dr. Beatty not only understands the concept but practices it.”
