Dr. Victor Agusta, volunteer physician at Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic, has been selected for the 2018 Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club Angel Oak Award.
The prestigious award was established by the K-S Exchange Club in 2012 to “recognize a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the people or quality of life of Johns Island, Wadmalaw Island, Kiawah Island, and/or Seabrook Island.” One of the original volunteer physicians to practice at the free clinic, which opened its doors on Johns Island in 2009 under the leadership of doctors Charlie Davis and Arthur Booth, Dr. Agusta is now in his eighth year of treating low income, uninsured workers and residents who make up the Barrier Islands community.
An award ceremony to honor Dr. Agusta’s service to the community will be held on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at the Seabrook Island Club.
