The Catholic Charities Medical Clinic is looking for volunteers as it continues to serve Arkansas as it has done for more than 53 years.

The clinic’s medical professionals and volunteers advance the mission to provide free primary care medical and pharmacy services as well as patient education to the Spanish-speaking community.

The clinic provides free medical and pharmacy services to people 18 years of age and older unable to afford routine healthcare for the uninsured and underserved. Currently the clinic is seeking volunteer medical professionals; physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nurses and bilingual medical interpreters to serve Wednesdays from 5-8 p.m.

The medical professionals provide a once-a-week clinic during evening hours as well as pharmacy and laboratory services. In February 2023, the clinic received certification for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certificate of waiver. Having this waiver allows the clinic to obtain and closely monitor patients’ blood glucose and A1C testing.

The Catholic Charities Medical Clinic is located at The McDonald Center at 2415 North Tyler Street, on the campus of St. John Center in Little Rock. To inquire about volunteering, contact director Janice Bohac at or (501) 664-0340.
