The Free Clinic of Culpeper was recognized on November 15, 2023 at an event in Richmond for its role in providing its patients with free prescription medication to support the improved health of their patients. The clinic is able to provide its patients with medication to treat a variety of chronic conditions like diabetes
and hypertension because of the connection with the statewide nonprofit, Rx Partnership. In 2022, the Free Clinic of Culpeper served nearly 600 patients.
“The staff and volunteers at Virginia clinics that serve the uninsured provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients who struggle to afford basic needs – and would likely not see a physician or fill their prescriptions if the clinic wasn’t there for them,” said Amy Yarcich, Executive Director of Rx Partnership. “The clinics serve as an essential safety net for vulnerable patients.”
Culpeper Free Clinic director Tammy LaGraffe said, “We are so grateful for all the support Rx Partnership gives our clinic; this support enables us to access medications to help keep our patients healthy and out of the hospital. The support that Rx Partnership provides to our clinic saves our patients thousands of dollars in medication and results in patients being able to take medication as directed – they can see real improvement in their health because of Rx Partnership.”
The Free Clinic of Culpeper received its certificate of recognition from Rx Partnership during the Virginia
Association of & Charitable Clinic’s conference in Richmond.
