Samaritan Program

There are 45 million Americans who have little or no access to health care, and the number is growing at a rate of one million people per year. These medically underserved are all across this country, and many are our own neighbors or family members. Their lack of basic health care is not just a problem for them, but for everyone in Nassau County.
