PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, NOVEMBER 12, 1982 West Little Rock Health Clinic Aids Location's Needy By Sister Janice Campbell, S.C.N. For the past 12 years, Catholic Social Services of the Little Rock Diocese has sponsored a health clinic in West Little Rock, enabling the needy in that area to receive health care where none existed. Since February, 1982, the clinic has found a home at Aldersgate Camp, a center under the auspices of the Methodist Church and a haven for special groups of youths and adults for retreats, summer camps, weekend respite programs, etc. John Blundell, director of Aldersgate and his staff, have opened their doors to the Health Clinic Program, which is operated by a professional staff of physicians, nurses and others who volunteer freely of their services. Sister Concetta Mazzanti, O.S.B., has directed the program since its instigation in 1970. Dr. Ed Barron has been the mainstay as physician and, as Sister Concetta claims, "I know he'll get his 'ticket' to heaven with the work he's done for all our patients over these 12 years." As clinic manager, Clyde Jensen has seen a lot of illness being cared for during the years he has been involved -- the young, the elderly, the jobless, the chronically ill, etc. Both he and Fred Berg have been long-time volun- teers who take care of all the small details which mean so much in running the clinic, such as transportation, delivering supplies and reCord-keeping. Assisting him on a regular basis is Dennis Hankinson, who seems to have a knack for handling all types of patient information, record keeping, supplies and such. Dr. William Sisson substitutes for Dr. Barron once a month and the 14 nurses who volunteer are on a rotational basis. One of the problems facing the clinic in the future is the several costs which are regularly expended, such as prescriptions, medical supplies and transportation. Anyone who would like to help defray the expense may make their contributions to West Little Rock Health Clinic, care of Sister Janice Campbell, Catholic Social Services, 2415 North Tyler Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72207. For further information, contact Sister Janice at 664-0340. Fred Berg (above) registers several patients arriving at Wedn, Clinic at Aldersgate Camp Building.
