Healthcare for the Homeless
As the Medical Director of Changed Lives Medical Clinic, Dr. Marc E. Bloomston has found his way to give back and hopefully make a difference in the lives of the neediest patients. "It is important to me that when one encounters an opportunity to help others, by doing so one can begin to heal the world," said Dr. Bloomston. "Cindy Underwood, R.N. and many Birmingham physicians, nurses, and others comprise a volunteer staff that makes up a medical clinic under a viaduct in downtown Birmingham. We serve all comers once a month, and treat a variety of medical needs including acute respiratory illnesses, wound management, hypertension, blood sugar checks, and answering questions related to their health. Every clinic there is always one thing that impresses me the most and that is the tremendous need that exists in our homeless population. It is an honor to be a part of this wonderful organization."
