Congratulations to the NAFC Executive Director Nicole Lamoureux for being honored and recognized in the Non Profit Times 2013 Power and Influence Top 50 Honorees list. The staff and board are very proud of Nicole for this well-deserved recognition.
Below are the excerpts from the article:
"There are a few million unnecessary emergency room visits every year. For those who suffer though without medical assistance there is a network bringing free care to a town near you whose national infrastructure could meet in a phone booth. For those who don’t remember phone booths, it’s a great analogy. You could fit, maybe, three people in them."
Nicole Lamoureux Busby - Executive Director
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics
"One of the centerpieces of the Affordable Care Act is to reduce the number of emergency room visits for non-emergency, indigent patients. The model is already in place and Busby runs it. And, the 1,200 clinics in the network do it with almost no federal or state money. Large hospital systems should learn how it is done and delivered well."
Congratulations to Nicole on this incredible honor!
