Dr. Chapin Henley’s Story

Shortly after I retired, I was exercising on a treadmill reading an article in Newsweek magazine. The title was ‘What have you done for someone today?’ It was about a volunteer clinic at Hilton Head for working uninsured people who fell through the cracks in our healthcare system. It dawned on me that there were bound to be hardworking people in Macon who fit this description.

Winchester Blanks

Mr. Winchester Blanks came to MVC as a volunteer in 2013, knowing that he could help people who work hard every day but who fall through the cracks. When asked why he volunteers, Mr. Blanks said, "It's a good thing for the community; the patients here work to receive medical coverage." With his signature smile, Mr. Blanks added, "I think it's cool that so many doctors donate their time. I really enjoy the folks at the clinic."
