Volunteer Spotlight

Danbury Volunteer - Jayne Flynn

Jayne Flynn joined the Danbury clinic in 2009 immediately after retiring from practice at a federally qualified health clinic in New York. She is a licensed family nurse practitioner and is fluent in Spanish and English. Jane says of working in the clinic, “It is a real privilege to serve as a volunteer in an organization with such a dedicated staff and inspiring mission. Working with such competent, kind and compassionate people has made me not only a better provider but a better person as well.”

 

Norwalk Volunteer - Mary Waller

Volunteering since 2007, Mary Waller provides an essential service, interpreting for Spanish-speaking patients at the Norwalk clinic. Committed to helping those less fortunate, she volunteers two or three times per month. “As Muhammad Ali said, ‘Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.’ ” Waller said. “I feel that all of us have had people in our lives who have reached out a hand and helped us along the way to get to where we are. I certainly have. Now it is time to pay it forward, with joy!”

 

Danbury Volunteer - Dr. Joseph Belsky

Dr. Joseph Belsky brings a wealth of experience to the Danbury clinic. He has been practicing in Danbury for more than 40 years, both in private and group practice. He sees patients twice a week as part of his work with Danbury Hospital's Office of Physicians' Services and is also a clinical professor of medicine at Yale University.

 

Bridgeport Volunteer - Dr. Maher

Dr. Maher meets many low-income wage earners who cannot afford their employers’ health care plans in our free clinics. He has been volunteering since 2004 and sees patients in both our Bridgeport and Norwalk clinics. Dr. Maher says of working in the clinics, “It’s very satisfying. There is plenty of support. And the need is tremendous.”

 

Norwalk Volunteer - Dr. Jack Falsone

Dr. Jack Falsone is the Norwalk clinic’s medical director and has been volunteering since 1994. He serves on the clinic’s Advisory Council and regularly recruits fellow physicians to volunteer. Dr. Falsone says, “This is a great chance to give back to the community in a rewarding environment where the patients are grateful for what is being done for them. The lack of paperwork and third party interference is attractive too!”
