Debra first came to Duchesne Clinic with headaches, blackouts, and thinking she must be dying. With blood sugar levels over 500 and no idea how to control her diabetes, death was a very real possibility.
Daniela was referred to Duchesne Clinic from a hospital. Ten days after giving birth, this young mom with no prior history of heart disease had a heart attack. Duchesne Clinic's volunteer cardiologist helps her stay healthy, even arranging open-heart surgery.
Unemployed and alone for the first time in her life, Teresa didn't know she had diabetes and couldn't afford to make good nutritional choices. Duchesne Clinic's patient advocate took her to lunch at a local soup kitchen and helped her learn what her options are in getting help and finding good nutrition.
How do we help these patients? Through the commitment of many individuals, community groups, businesses and foundations who are dedicated to the health of our patients and our community. Each year, volunteer doctors, nurses and others donate over 7000 hours to keep our clinic running. Even with a tremendous donation of time and talent, we must raise about $1,000,000 per year to provide quality, compassionate healthcare to over 2000 people.
