A Place to Feel Secure

May 4, 2010

Anna Walton, 21, a senior at the University of South Carolina explains the purpose and necessity of the Good Samaritan Clinic in Columbia, South Carolina.  The clinic was founded 11 years ago and specializes in providing “culturally competent, linguistically competent services” for the Hispanic community.  Walton explains that the clinic offers Hispanics “a place to feel secure” in a world where they are constantly faced with language barriers.  While the clinic specializes in Hispanic-related services, it treats patients of all races and backgrounds.  The Good Samaritan Clinic treats 13 patients every Tuesday and Thursday night in Columbia.

This is a project I just finished.  I had a great time learning about the Good Samaritan Clinic. The learn more, visit their website.

Special thanks to Anna Walton, Clinic Director, Lidia [last name withheld], and the Good Samaritan Clinic.

    Hi Sarah!

    Hoping this message finds you well.
    I am going to be volunteering with the clinic for the rest of my time here and I also began blogging again, so I am embedding your video on my blog. With due credit, of course! Just wanted to let you know. 🙂
    Also, the link to the clinic here misdirects. So when you get a chance you could edit that.

    I have been meaning to write you a proper email…should happen in a couple of days.

    Miss you!
