When we meet a volunteer that comes back to help time and time again, they deserve to be recognized. Demetra began as a Clinic volunteer six years ago as a high school sophomore. Since then, she’s become a University of Florida Gator and has made her return to the Clinic a rising college senior as a clerical intern. She is focusing her studies on Chemistry, and we can’t help but think we have something to do with her decision to minor in Health Disparities!

When asked what keeps her coming back to the Clinic, she says it’s the special connection with the patients here. “The dynamic between patients and the Clinic is remarkable. Knowing that without the Clinic, they would not otherwise be able to receive care allows us to shine as a beacon of hope for them.” Demetra loves spreading the message of the Clinic to those in her church community and has quite the soft spot for our mission and those we serve. Thank you for all that you do!
