Students celebrate 20 years of providing free health care services to local communities

2015 marks the twentieth year that students have provided free health care through Martha’s Clinic to the indigent population of Temple, Texas. Martha’s Clinic was started by two Texas A&M medical students, Eric Wilke and Eric Beshires, who saw a need for better health care for the homeless and indigent population in Central Texas. Through a joint effort of dedicated medical students and Martha's Kitchen, a free student-run clinic for the homeless was established.

Chords of healing

When Ashley Smith, a third-year dental student at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry, isn't treating patients in the clinic, she can be found at the Baylor Sammons Cancer Center next door to the college, playing piano for patients and their families as part of the hospital's Healing Arts Program.
