Service Project: Volunteers in Medicine

This year the South Carolina Counseling Association is proud to announce Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) of Hilton Head, South Carolina as its service project recipient of charitable donations. 

Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) began in Hilton Head, South Carolina. In 1992, one out of three people who lived on Hilton Head Island had no access to health care. At the same time, a number of retired medical personnel (physicians, nurses, dentists, and other professionals) began expressing an interest in finding a way to continue practicing their profession on a voluntary, part-time basis to help those without access to care. In 1993, the two groups worked together and created the Volunteers in Medicine Clinic, a 501 (c)(3) free health clinic utilizing retired health care professionals. 

The "Culture of Caring" is the heart and soul of the VIM clinic. It is based on an ethical standard in medicine that was once practiced and should be again. The way people are treated during a visit to the clinic is as important as the medical care they receive. 

Those who come to the clinic are good people in need of help. Surviving on limited resources, these people often exhibit great courage in simply trying to get through each day. The "Culture of Caring" recognizes the strengths of those in need and respects their dignity. VIM seeks to heal not only physical illnesses but also the injury caused by bias, prejudice, and indifference. 

Today every person who lives or works on Hilton Head Island has easy access to health care. And the best part is that it was accomplished using an untapped resource, the retired medical professionals.
