“Hello, 

Volunteering at Julia’s Center for Healthcare means so much more than acquiring volunteer hours; it brings joy to the heart and reminds me why I chose to pursue healthcare. It is an honor to serve at this clinic, even after a long work day, because I know I will always leave the clinic with a sense of happiness and satisfaction. I was brought up going to clinics for the uninsured community, and volunteering at Julia’s Center for Healthcare feels like an act of giving back. My goal is to return to this wonderful clinic as a Physician Assistant. 

Thank you, 

Devany Morales”

Volunteer Testimony, Julia's Center

Alicia H.: 

“My primary motive for volunteering at Julia’s center is love for people who need help with health care and have limited access to health care resources. 

Julia’s is often their only opportunity to see a doctor without going to an emergency hospital. They often don’t seek care until their symptoms have compounded. Our work at Julia’s often identifies patients’ health problems in time to prevent an emergency room visit. 

My volunteering opportunities at Julia’s have been a satisfying experience for me. Translating for patients and seeing many of them who have been able to manage their health challenges with our help is rewarding for all the incredible Doctors, nurses, administrative volunteers, and me. I feel like I have been fortunate to be on Julia’s team of angels from the start.” 

Translator Testimony, Julia's Center

Pamela R.: 

“I’m a nurse, and I volunteer at Julia’s Center for Health Care to use my nursing skills and experience to be in God’s hands to help provide primary medical care to the uninsured individuals in the Collin County community. 

Many people in our community do not have the opportunity for healthcare because of financial, cultural, or social barriers. Julia’s Center welcomes those clients and provides healthcare services in a caring, compassionate environment with interpreters for those uncomfortable speaking English. 

Julia’s Center volunteers work as a team to welcome clients and serve them in a way that honors their dignity. Julia’s Center is a positive environment where volunteers are eager to help each other and work together. The volunteers are loving and caring. They meet clients where they are

in their health journey without judgment. The volunteers build a trusting relationship with the clients. Many of the clients can come to Julia’s Center because they feel welcome and comfortable at Julia’s Center. 

Julia’s Center provides healthcare services that help to improve the clients’ health and therefore improve their lives, the lives of their families, and ultimately, the lives of other community members. 

It’s a privilege to care for our clients and to work alongside such a dedicated group of volunteers. Pamela Rines, RN, BSN” 

Nurse Testimony, Julia's Center

Dr. Vani Duvuuri: 

“As a physician, I have had a rewarding experience working at Julia’s Center for the past few years. As an endocrinologist, I can provide comprehensive diabetes care for uninsured patients in Collin County. Alongside a team of highly skilled endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, diabetes educators, ophthalmologists, podiatrists, and student volunteers, we have served countless patients who otherwise would not be able to access healthcare services. 

Julia’s Center offers a comprehensive free diabetes education program, treatment, and screening services for retinal and foot exams. With a pilot study funded by the Raymond James Charitable Initiative, we demonstrated that our program had profound health impacts on our patients. They experienced improved blood sugar control, evidenced by a decrease in HGB A1C, blood pressure, and weight loss, as well as a decrease in reported emergency room visits. This program not only improved patients’ blood sugar control but also their quality of life. 

The diabetes care team at Julia’s Clinic provides a rewarding experience for both the patients and providers. I strongly recommend this clinic to any physician seeking to join a wonderful team and give back to the local community.”
