Jonathan Biondi has volunteered with the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics to help bring free health care to those who need it. He wrote about his experiences for MSNBC.

I first heard about the NAFC CARE Clinics on an MSNBC call for support and immediately signed up to join the Kansas City clinic. I rememberi being happy to discover that, having no medical background, I could still help people access much needed medical care. I wasn’t sure whom I expected to see using the clinic, but I was surprised to meet the wide variety of patients in line for the clinic to open that day.
