Here’s to 10 years – Doc in a Bus providing help to community

Published 4:23 pm Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Ten years ago, Doc in a Bus began providing healthcare to the Dallas County citizens.

The free clinic offers free service to people without health service. It went from operating out of a renovated camper stationed at the Salvation Army office to a building on 1432 Broad St. provided by the Fathers of St. Edmund.

United Way of Selma and Dallas County provides administrative support, grant support and funding. HealthLink’s partnership with Vaughan Community Health Services helps patients get their prescription drugs free or at a reduced cost.

United Way of Selma and Dallas County Executive Director Jeff Cothran said it’s all of the partnerships that make Doc in a Bus work effectively. The United Way campaign was also announced at the event.

“It has been successful,” Cothran said. “This is the type of proactive partnership that Selma needs, not a giveaway, but a means for families to be able to provide for themselves.”

We thank this service for helping keep our citizens in good health. It has passed all boundaries where money is not an issue, and the main goal is just keeping people healthy.
