Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is an extraordinary example of what can be accomplished when a group of talented volunteers work together. Thanks to our dedicated health care volunteers, we have provided free primary and specialty care to over 4,000 adults living at or below the 200% of poverty level on Johns, James & Wadmalaw Island or Folly Beach.
