We Care of Lee County logo

We Care of Lee County needs specialty providers to volunteer their services to uninsured people in Lee County.

Last year, 437 providers donated 1,971 hours and saw 420 patients. We Care physicians are not now represented by every specialty. We would like your help to change that.
