Outreach & Reaching Out--Still a Good Idea

Guadalupe Clinic began reaching out 33 years ago as an all volunteer nurse-run health station offering screenings such as blood pressure, blood sugars, and weight.  Today our dedicated volunteer medical professionals and the organizations that support us through donating goods and services make it possible to provide primary and specialty healthcare to thousands every year.  To stay in touch with our roots and the ever-changing needs of the community we serve, clinic volunteers and staff consistently participate in outreach events throughout the year.

Events include a breakfast held on the first Saturday of every month and hosted by First Presbyterian church. In addition to health checks and screenings, clinic staff also learn about the needs of the people by listening to their individual life stories.  Another monthly event is Church On the Street. Reaching out to the homeless, KU School of Medicine “JayDocs” provide health screenings, and they along with Guadalupe Clinic hand out hygiene products. During the summer these packs include sunscreen, bandages, and hand sanitizer. For the winter months socks, lotion and chapstick are provided.  The clinic receives many generous donations of blankets and throws and these are packaged and given out, also.

Other ways we reach out on a regular basis include conducting health screenings at St. Peter Claver, the Asian Wellness Fair, the winter men’s shelter at Interfaith Ministries, and La Familia. Our participation in Ascension’s Medical Mission at Home focuses on women’s health which is recognized as a component critical to the overall well-being of family units.

Guadalupe Clinic staff, volunteers and donors are thankful to have the opportunity reach out and serve those less fortunate and contribute to a better future for them and the entire Wichita community.

You Knocked it out of the Park!

On June 10th, 2018 the Guadalupe Clinic hosted its 30th Annual Wingnuts Baseball Game Fundraiser to provide quality healthcare for uninsured people in Wichita and surrounding communities.  A special thanks to all the parishes that support Guadalupe Clinic and our sponsors who also gave faithfully to make this event possible.

This year’s game honored Dr. Jim Loeffler, who has supported this event from its beginning 30 years ago.  Since its inception, the ballgame has raised nearly $1.3 million dollars to serve those in our community in need of quality healthcare. Thanks to our gracious supporters, who purchased tickets and made donations so that tickets could be purchased and distributed to the Clinic’s patients and their families. 

Your continued support provides Health & Hope!  Because of your stewardship, no one is ever turned away.  For more information and event pictures go to: www.GuadalupeClinic.org/wingnuts-ballgame

   

Jackie Aday, Volunteer RN

Jackie is a Certified Diabetic Educator (CDE) and she joined us as a volunteer in January 2018. She is a registered nurse with over 20 years’ experience in diabetic education and is currently employed at Children’s Mercy.

Jackie states that, “Volunteering at Guadalupe Clinic gives me the opportunity to provide diabetes education to patients that could never afford to see a diabetes educator. I like to assess each patient’s needs for diabetes management and develop a plan.

There is not a one-size-fits-all with diabetes management. I like to be sure they understand their diabetes management plan. Often, patients are not taking their medication correctly.”

It would be invaluable if she could follow up with the patients, a few times a year, to be sure they are staying on track with their medication and adjust their plan if needed. “Diabetes is a progressive disease, and often requires a patient to make a change, to improve their blood glucose control.”

Guadalupe Clinic is privileged to have Jackie volunteering and we are excited for our patients to benefit from her knowledge.

No One to Turn to for Help…

The Community Support committee at St. George Orthodox Christian Cathedral has awarded the clinic operational grants for the past few years, and we are so grateful. I got to know Traci, the chair of this committee, as she became more aware of the services the clinic offers.

Traci called me a few months ago and wanted to know if the clinic could help her brother, who had been injured on the job and was unable to work, so he lost his job and the health insurance that came with it. “My brother is struggling with severe depression,” Tracy told me. “He needs help with his medical and mental health care—he can’t afford it anymore.”

 “I always had a job and because of that I always had health insurance,” he said. “Then I hit a hard place in my life because I lost my job after I was injured, then lost my health insurance and have been uninsured for the past two years.”

“Without insurance, I couldn’t afford to continue to see my mental health care provider and I just lost hope,” he continued. “There was no one to turn to for help until my sister told me about Guadalupe Clinic.”

Our History

In 1985, six volunteer nurses decided to change the face of medicine in Wichita.  They wanted quality affordable health care made available to everyone, regardless of income.  They founded Guadalupe Health Station, which later was renamed Guadalupe Clinic.  Now some 32 years later, there are three clinics and volunteers and staff also provide outreach services at various locations around Wichita.  Guadalupe Clinic has been a donation-based clinic since its inception in 1985. Patients are asked for a $5 donation and receive a doctor's care, lab tests, x-rays, and medication for that donation. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.   Medical volunteers along with staff provide thousands of medical services each year to those in our community with no insurance or other affordable means to health care services.

These are the many companies and foundations that have provided Guadalupe Clinic with needed funding through grant opportunities. We are humbled and grateful for their belief in our mission and for all of their generous support.
