Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (LMU-DCOM) Student National Medical Association (SNMA) recently made a donation to Servolution Health Services (SHS).

Servolution Health Services operates a free clinic for the uninsured of the Tri-State area. The clinic is located in the old Powell Valley High School vocational building in Speedwell. LMU-DCOM SNMA raised more than $1,000 through a chili cook-off hosted on Nov. 6.

SNMA is the oldest and largest student-run organization focused on the needs and concerns of medical students of color. Membership includes more than 6,000 medical students, pre-medical students, residents and physicians.

Established in 1964 by medical students from Howard University and Meharry medical schools, the SNMA boasts over 40 years of advocacy and service to underserved communities and medical students.

Servolution Health Services recognizes that Jesus Christ is the true healer of individuals, their communities and the source of our ability to serve. Servolution Health Services is a ministry presenting Christ to the Tri-State area by providing excellent holistic health, dental and mental health services to the community regardless of ability to pay and regardless of faith.

As a faith based organization, it is the mission of SHS to enhance community health through service with compassion, excellence and efficiency.
