STAFF: Family Health Care is a democratic organization that respects input from all staff. All the employees could earn a lot more money elsewhere; but, their commitment/dedication to the clinic's work is why they stay. BOARD: The board is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds. It includes patients, community members, health care providers, etc. Each board member brings a varied and interesting viewpoint. The clinic completed a $2.1 million capital campaign to expand the clinic in 2006 and a $1 million expansion campaign was finished within a six month period in 2012. The clinic is sound financially; and we own the buildings. We are able to attract grants for operations and programming. We are always working to improve and expand funding sources, special event fundraisers and individual giving. Sometimes the best fundraising happens when we bring a prospective donor to the clinic and they see how well we use their dollars. Dr. Lee has been able to start many needed projects at the clinic and give them "wings" to be self sufficient. Examples include Duchesne Clinic and Hope Care Center for AIDS patients.

Family Health Care responded to the needs of the community, particularly those with HIV+ sexual partners who are sero-negative for HIV and are therefore at risk for acquiring infection with HIV. PrEP is recommended by the CDC as an effective means of preventing new HIV infections. The medication- Truvada is taken daily and allows discordant couples to have more routine relationships and plan pregnancies.
PEP is provided for people who believe they have been exposed to HIV in the previous 72 hours. It is an important adjunct to help prevent acute infections and at the time of this writing, FHC is the ONLY community agency offering this treatment.
